I spent parts of the last two weeks at fly-ins at Blakesburg and Brodhead. The weather at Blakesburg was excellent with just the right amount of sun, clouds and wind. The airplanes on display were outstanding and the sky was continually filled with action.
The second week was at the Brodhead fly-in. There are a total of three Curtiss Wright Juniors based there. We spent one afternoon gathered in a hangar talking of the CW-1. There were 5 CW-1 owners among us. Maybe next year we will have 6 owners. Consider joining us next year.
In between the two fly-ins, I spent some time at an interesting airport in Poplar Grove, Illinois. There are many interesting airplanes based there. There is a marvelous aviation museum there. If you are ever in the area, make sure to stop by. Poplar grove airport’s identifier is C77.
