...And Airplanes Converge At AOPA HQ And Fly-Ins
For many pilots, their favorite summer events are not the air shows where they spectate, but the fly-ins where they can actually aviate ... or at least, park and then hang out with other aviators. One newcomer is an as-yet-unnamed event now in the planning stages for Sept. 23-25 at the Alva (Okla.) Airport. Organizers hope to draw up to 800 fly-in aircraft and a bill of top-end air show performers. And for those in the market for something shiny and new, Clow Airport, in Bolingbrook, Ill., hosts the 6th Cavalcade of New Airplanes this weekend, when visitors can get an up-close look at the latest Diamonds, Lancairs, Cirri, and more. And for those on the East Coast, AOPA's annual open house and fly-in is this Saturday in Frederick, Md. AVweb will be there to tell you all about it.
