Let’s call the 49th Antique Fly-In (Sat. 6/12) a “Triumph Over Adversity” – adversity in the form of weather & weather forecasts. Thanks to the Potomac Antique Aero Squadron for putting on this event and everyone that volunteers and, of course, all the pilots that showed up despite the discouraging view out their windows when they woke up Saturday morning. Photos and details to follow on our Facebook page in a day or so (See Link above/right).
Updates and Current News are also posted on Facebook (See Link in Menu: Above Right). If no answer at 410-928-5270: Call Bill @ 610-676-0198. I SCREEN CALLS, so call twice.
The Massey Air Museum is OPEN for Self-Guided Tours, pick up a Tour Guide sheet in the lobby. Feel free to ask questions (if you don’t see us, we may be working in the shop or outside). If the hangar entry doors are closed we will be glad to open them so you can also walk through the two community hangars. Although the DC-3 can get hot on sunny summer days, we will open the airstair door for you to go inside when it’s temperate. The An-2 is also open to tour. Masks are required for NON-VACCINATED persons ONLY. Museum Hours: 11 AM to 5 PM every day. – Calling ahead is recommended.
