Flying Circus

June 29, 2018

Imagine a 4,000-foot runway, long enough to accommodate a commercial jet.

Now imagine that runway made entirely of grass – a smooth stretch of green covering nearly a mile of flat landscape.

Add forty-some vintage airplanes from World War II or earlier to that image.

Populate the scene with pilots showing off their aircraft to kids and adults, answering questions and exchanging stories. Watch some of those kids and adults climb into an open-cockpit bi-plane for a ride, while others on the ground cheer takeoffs and landings. Smell a whole variety of yummy treats.

Now add yourself to the picture.

It’s not just a daydream. On July 17, 2018 get up close and personal!

The 11th Annual Hagerstown Fly-In … this year honoring our nearby native son, Wilbur Wright and our own Marvin Stohler, will be open 2 – 9 p.m. Visit with pilots, enjoy food, fun, games. Bi-Plane rides available, weather permitting. Brent “Big Daddy” Meadows sings the National Anthem at 6 p.m., with ceremony honoring aviators to follow. FREE!!!
