Antique Friendly Fuel Stops

Posted in News | September 04, 2009

Got a favorite fuel stop that's antiquer-friendly? Send it in and we'll publish it for the benefit of other members. Two good stops when approaching Blakesburg from are:

Carlson Aviation at Yankton, SD. Gary and Katie Carlson run the FBO which has a great terminal and lounge, cheap gas (ask about an antiquer & Oshkosh discount) and wonderful friendly service. Hangars are available for antiquers. After a long day of being bumped across the South Dakota badlands, Yankton is a welcoming place to relax.

Greenfield, IA now has a 24 hour credit card gas pump, and is the home to the Iowa Aviation Museum which is well worth seeing.
