Each year, the Piper faithful make the pilgrimage back to the place of their loved ones' birth, Lock Haven, Pa. They come to pay homage to the type, gaze upon all the other examples bearing William T.'s name, tour the Piper Aviation Museum and, well, just celebrate flight. This year was no different, with more than 135 airplanes (of all types) flying into Lock Haven and 500 or so arriving by automobile. AVweb's Peter Yost was there and filed this report. He also came back with a bunch of images, just in case you couldn't make it this year.
