Hello to Everyone!
Good golly, has it been a year ALREADY? Yes we are preparing for the 4TH ANNUAL FANTASY FIELD FLY-IN, hosted by Kelly and Terry Sullivan.
I can’t get over the amount of emails I have received about this year’s fly-in! Thank you all for your support and encouragement. This year our fly-in will be on Saturday June 19th, which is the day before Father's Day. We had to move it up a week due to some scheduling conflicts with the SuperCub Competition up north on the following weekend. Kelly likes to attend that competition and show those Cub drivers how to fly!!!
We are clearing more fields for aircraft parking and camping. I have spent the winter months cruising Craigslist for more tables and chairs. I was thinking we should have a theme to this year’s fly-in.....everybody wear Hawaiian shirts! I plan to take lots of pictures this year, since I have heard that a couple of rarities will be flying in!
What better way can you think of to start the summer off, than a home-grown, grassroots fly-in, in your own backyard!
We love having this fly-in, because it is more than just aviation: it feels more like a big family barbecue. Young and old, pilots, teachers, doctors, beauticians, engineers, blue collar and more; we all have a great time together and enjoy the sun, good food, great friends and family, flying and fun. Last year’s attendance was awesome, with almost 50 aircraft! We had planes come in from as far away as California and eastern Montana.
We enjoyed such a wide representation of our aviation community; from certified's to experimentals, ultralights, trikes and 'chutes. I would love to host a balloon (hint-hint), or maybe even another impromptu fly-by (like we had the first year, by a "colorful" group of Navions.)
As usual, we (no, I don’t have a mouse in my pocket) will be doing the grilling and provide the beverages; all we ask is that you bring your most delicious side dish, salad or dessert!
There is always a restroom facility, plus a wash-up station and we are hoping to provide more shade areas for people to relax under. We will still have plenty of off-street parking for those who choose to drive in. And yes, there will be camping sites available, especially for those who want to stay for happy hour, hangar talk and that late night poker game.
I am getting excited just talking about it! Put it on your calendar....June 19th! Can't wait to see you all here! Bring on the sunshine!!!!
The coordinates are:
We are known as FA99, Fantasy Field Airstrip a private field, and on the sectional.
Until then, wishing you all good flying and smooth air!
