TRIPLE TREE FLY-IN 2015Once again, the skies over Triple Tree were filled with…….clouds but that only lasted for a day or two and then things got into full swing! Wednesday was fairly slow with only a few aircraft arriving between breaks in the low ceiling and showers. On Thursday, the weather began to improve and by Thursday afternoon, with clearing skies, there was a fairly steady stream of arrivals.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday were beautiful and there was a constant stream of airplanes with happy people onboard arriving at the world’s most beautiful airport. As usual, the Triple Tree advisory controllers did a great job smoothing the flow of airplanes to the 7,000 foot long manicured runway. Once on the ground, the ground crew safely directed everyone to parking. Then, the fun began with our guests enjoying lots of that Triple Tree “Fun. Fellowship and Hospitality.” It has to be noted that we had one gentleman fly a 7AC Champ from Massachusetts!
Ultimately, in spite of a couple of days of shaky weather, approximately 400 airplanes arrived. Included in this total was our great airplane friend “Tinker Belle” a C-46 that always draws a crowd.
Another star of the show was “Swamp Fox” a P-51 owned by Robert Dickson and flown into Triple Tree by his son. Once parked, Swamp Fox and its pilot were greeted by Pat and Mary Lou Hartness and Morris McKinney who flew P-51s during WWII.
