Well, this last Saturday was the first fly-in of the season. Even with the threat of bad weather, heat haze and low attendance I made the 3 hour drive just to see how it was. Yes, there was less traffic than usual, but still quite a few planes that weren’t there before, including a nice looking Cessna 310R that I had seen two weeks before in Sedona. Also, fellow spotter Kyle Boyd flew a C172 from Deer Valley.
And it seems like N138FF, the Hercules that sat outside the IAR hangar seems to be slowly being brought back to airworthiness, as the wings are now sitting next to the plane.
Now, I do have to say, it did get pretty hot that day, mid 90s or so, but that didn’t ruin the photos.
