This weekend is the annual Red Stewart Field / EAA Chapter 284 aviation celebration. On Saturday, the Stewarts open up their airfield for an open house which begins at 4 PM off Route 42 in Waynesville Ohio (directions). They offer a donation accepted ‘free’ chili dinner followed by an airshow that has always been excellent; this year promises to be great and it starts at 5PM. The weather looks excellent so be sure to fly or drive out to Waynesville.

For those flying in and camping, our EAA284 pancake breakfast will start at 7 AM on Sunday morning (9/2) and we encourage all who support aviation and the Experimental Aircraft Association to visit us. Most of the airplanes displayed and flown in at the field with be of the ‘taildragger’ variety. It is great to see preservation of many antique aircraft as well as the homebuilt experimental variety. If you have a son or daughter, show up at 11AM (til 2PM) and give them a free introduction to airplanes with a walk around and flight with one of our members — be part of the Young Eagles.

Our chapter will also be holding a raffle this year. Prizes are:
1) A ride in Brett Hunter’s Magnum Pitts
2) a Stearman ride donated by the Stewarts
3) a YAK 52 ride donated by Jay Hodge
Tickets will be available at the airshow on Saturday and at the Pancake breakfast Sunday morning — Look for me.
