Flying Dutchman Airport Hosts Spring Pancake Breakfast Fly-In
By Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience made a short visit to the spring Pancake Breakfast Fly-In at the Flying Dutchman Airport in Belleville, IL on Saturday. The annual event is part of the local aviation tradition, bringing together a variety of aircraft and the characters who fly them. We arrived later in the morning on our way from the American Waco Club Fly-In event at nearby Aero Estates Airport, and we caught the remaining aircraft on the field before they took off. We have a few images of the Luscombes, Junior Ace, Bell OH-58 and Fly Baby project we found there before we returned to Aero Estates.
