Come Fly With Me
The world of flight is full of endless possibilities and breathtaking technology. From the Wright brothers' first model to the 1942 Fairchild PT-26 to the most modern military and law enforcement aircraft, there is so much to be seen and experienced. This weekend boasts the perfect event for all airplane aficionados and novices at the 23rd annual Land of Enchantment Fly-In located at the Double Eagle II Airport on Albuquerque's Westside. Spend the day viewing static aircraft displays, military vehicles, classic cars and radio-controlled flight demos. Enjoy workshops and exhibits to learn about aviation education, careers, building, back country flying, safety and technology. Aircraft will fly in from across the country to join this special event, including veteran airshow pilot Bob Carlton with his jet sailplane, seeking to set the record for his “longest powered cross-country flight.” Keep your eyes peeled for the “Chile Flight,” a local formation flying team of amateur-built Vans RV aircraft. The list of activities for this free day of flying fun goes on and on. Visit loefi.org for more information and a full schedule of events. (Emily Aragon)
