Coolidge Breakfest Fly-in 2010-2011 season.

By: Category: AirshowsRoad tripsWarbird

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.

I do want to give a shout out to Phil he helped me a great deal. Read More
