On Saturday, May 20th, my husband and I rode to Flabob Airport in Riverside, CA to spend the day at the Flabob Fly In. Built in 1925, Flabob Airport is a gem. It's 1940s feel was perfect for the weekend event, where a varied and unique group of DC airplanes were on hand for tours, demonstrations, and flights. The event was spectacularly orchestrated -- big band music was pumped through speakers all along the runway, and the announcer at the mic was informative and entertaining. Despite planes of air show quality, the Fly In was a more casual event, relaxed and more intimate.
Many more wonderful photographs from the event can be found on the official Flabob Fly In website.
I can't wait until next year!
