The annual Pietenpol (36th Annual) and Hatz Fly-in is history. Hot and very humid weather did not keep the crowds down at all and daytime provided good flying weather on all days. Rain and thunderstorms kept a few campers wet on the overnights but all survived without damage.
Not an official count, but at least four Hatz Biplanes were in attendance along with “about 22” Pietenpols of all flavors. We appreciate all the good words that people from all over the world had to say about Brodhead Airport and Chapter 431 in particular. We’re glad you all came!
Special thanks to all EAA Chapter 431 members who worked their tails off all week to pull off another successful event. Thanks to Bob Pokorney for providing picture updates throughout the weekend. Check out his PHOTO GALLERY. More photos will be added in the days to come.
Look for more detailed updates on the Brodhead Pietenpol Association website.
