Asheboro Airport Fly-in

Saturday was the annual Fly-in at the Asheboro Airport.

The local Civil Air Patrol cadets presented the colors - beautiful day!

Lots of planes, lots of folks wandering looking at the planes.

The museum feeds all the pilots a hot-dog lunch....I obviously couldn't eat the hot dog, but they made me a "slaw dog" instead.  And those baked beans were really good - so sweet they tasted like candy!  (and they had no meat added!)

Our flight instructors took turns providing "introductory flights" to those brave souls.

 These folks were first time flyers.

Look at the face on the little boy - he was super excited!!  He got to fly the plane and he was happy!

And this man (in the safari hat) wanted his 84 year old friend to go with him, but the friend just didn't feel like it.  So, he asked this nice lady that just happened to be sitting in the terminal building if she'd like to go for the flight with him - a total stranger!  She jumped at the chance!  The flight instructor (Taylor - with the "I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning" tee shirt on) says they had a great time too!
