Wishing I Was AvGeekin' At Antique Airfield (Blakesburg, Iowa)

 The annual Antique Aircraft Association invitational fly-in at Antique Airfield in Blakesburg, Iowa has been going on since last Wednesday, and the last couple days have had fantastic weather. I was really hoping to be there so I could put up a nice stream of pix of all the fabulous antique and classic era aircraft that have flown in, but the last two years have been a recession with a big 'R' for me and I just couldn't work it in for this year. There's good news tho... you should hop on over to right now and check out their stream of pix showing some of what's been going on the last several days.

 This fly-in takes place on an airport straight out the past with a 2,350 foot long grass runway and relatively simple facilities. It's an authentic way to experience some of the most amazing airplanes from the grand history of aviation. Looking at the pictures they've posted so far makes me want to be there all the more. This is real flying!
