Wickenburg Fly-In and Thunderbird 150 Air Race

By: Category: Uncategorized

e1ds_2386_1200_n54az Almost 2 weeks ago there was a small-ish fly-in held in Wickenburg. Even though it was small there was a fair selection of planes and classic cars, as well as several aircraft that participated in a race. Unfortunately we came in pretty late and missed the arrivals. It also served as a warm-up for Copperstate 2012 Read More

Coolidge Fly-In October 11

By: Category: Fly-inUncategorized

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. Read More

Phxspotters Jason Bong and Joe Kates attended the fly-in on October 2nd 2010. The fly-in is held on the first Saturday of every month (except June, July, August and September), Coolidge Aviation, LLC sponsors the fly-in.  Breakfast is served by the Coolidge Lion’s Club in front of the main hangar at the airport.  The event usually starts about 8:00 a.m. and ends around 12:00 p.m. This is a great spotters adventure. Photographers are allowed up close and personal with the runway. Although for safety concerns we are expected to stand 25-35 feet off the runway. Here is just a couple pictures offered by Jason Bong.
