Flabob Offers A Visit To Aviation's Past
EAA Vintage Aircraft Chapter 33 will host their fifth annual
Open House at Flabob Airport (CA) on May 15th. The event, which is
free and open to everyone, expects to attract nearly 200 antique
and classic aircraft, a few dozen vintage cars and hot rods, along
with 500 to 1,000 people.
"It's a real laid back affair, a gathering of beautiful
airplanes and old friends," said Chapter president Leo Williams.
"We don't really plan much other than ways to provide food and how
to park all the planes that are flown in. A few guys have arranged
to give fabric covering demonstrations, there will be some radio
controlled aircraft flying, welding demonstrations, and a flea
market. But, clearly, the emphasis is on socializing, looking
at aircraft and watching them fly around in the pattern. We will be
staging flights for the Young Eagles program and some of the lucky
kids may get to fly in open cockpit biplanes. Otherwise, it's all
relaxation and fun."
Early arrivals can expect to be met by parking marshals around
8:00 a.m. and typically, things wrap up for the day by 4:00
p.m. Many participants come from the Southern California area
and most have been there for all of the Open Houses.
