Visitors to the 2012 Pietenpol/Hatz Fly-In will remember the blistering heat and burnt grass at Brodhead Airport during a summer heat wave and drought. A year later the temperature struggled to hit the low 60s with a stiff breeze and low clouds on Saturday, the busy day at our big summer event. It didn’t seem matter though, beyond selling out of sweatshirts and burning through a huge pile of wood at the fire pit. We had a great crowd on hand for the various forums and meetings, and looking through the parking lot, there were cars from all over the country and Canada with some overseas visitors checking in as well.
Here are some pictures from Saturday, July 27, 2013.
Look for more pictures in the Gallery section over the next few days.
