2014 Fly-Ins

IMG 0101-5073-800-600-100On Saturday, March 14 about DAF thirty members arrived at KCNO to enjoy two legendary aviation attractions, Flo’s Airport Café and Yanks Air Museum. After an easy flight, most of us “tailed it in” along the fence at Yanks which is located on the NW corner of the airport. The Haralambos needed a slightly more capacious spot nearby.

We all walked up to Flo’s for some fine dining, or at least acceptable lunches. If you haven’t been to Flo’s for about twenty or thirty years, some things never change. Then we divided into two groups and headed back to the museum where two docents lead us on personalized tours of this amazing collection.

The museum, restoration hangar, boneyard and a Constellation AWACS were all open to us. However, there were slight differences in the experiences of the two groups. The first one got to ride on the Airplane Merry Go-Round (videos on website for evidence). The second got to meet the owner of the museum and hear a fascinating presentation from him.

All headed home after a covering as much ground in the museum as the GPS direct route to KCNO, and it is reported that many enjoyed adult beverages upon arrival at KTOA. Probably in several locations!
