Sackman Field Fall Fly-In A Great Success
By Carmelo Turdo
It's that time of year - mid October - and that means the Sackman Field Fly-In was the place to be on Sunday for the St. Louis Metro East area aviation community. The weather was perfect, and attendance was high for planes, trains and automobiles. A wide variety of general aviation, ultralight, and even rotary winged aircraft were on hand, and most pilots made several trips around the grass strip during the day. If you did not attend this year's fly-in, you can experience it with us. But next time, you must be a part of this Midwest aviation tradition.
