The Weekender: Airshows to Potlucks


Our weekly foray into SocialFlight‘s web site for all that’s happening in general aviation uncovered the highest airshow on earth, a World War II-themed airshow, a Civil Air Patrol pancake feed and a potluck fly-in. On Saturday, June 7 from 10:00 a.m. to noon what is billed as the Highest Show on Earth, an airshow over Lake Dillon, adjacent to Dillon, Colo., is scheduled. It’s an air and water event plus a concert. The nearest airport is McElroy Field in Kremmling, Colo.
