Fly-out to AOPA Wings & Wheels at Frederick, MD (FDK) October 22nd, 2016

by Juergen Nies

The wind on this Satruday was simply blustering. Winchester (OKV) was reporting the whole day pretty much gusts in excess of 30 knots (though most of the time not more than 20 degrees off the runway heading). Dan still flew his Pilatus to the event and he had to be there early since he was displaying it in the aircraft display area, but I decided to leave the Pacer in the hangar and instead took my 1986 Porsche Carrera to participate in the event by displaying it. The event was well attended by spectators but due to the limited area to display airplanes there were not that many to look at. However, there were quite a lot of cars and motorbikes of all kind of models and vintage.

I hope some more of you can make it the next time.
