Awesome Antiques - Blakesburg Iowa Antique Fly In 2015

It was a last minute trip to Iowa this past September. The effort was worth it as the weather was sunny and the aircraft turned up in good numbers. Here are some highlights from the Antique Airplane Association Fly-In 2015 in Blakesburg, Iowa. This grass strip event provides the perfect setting for vintage airplanes and photography. It is another on my list of "must see" aviation events in the United States.
