Pancakes & Planes!

Wellsboro Johnston Airport holds popular Fly-In Breakfast!

 

by Corrin Binford - May 29, 2014

The Canyon Pilots Association, with help from the Canyon Country Ultralight Club – USUA Club 203, held the annual Memorial Day Fly-In Breakfast this past Sunday. For three hours the Wellsboro Johnston Airport was the busiest airport in Pennsylvania, with 65 airplanes on the ground. Over 100 different planes flew in for the event. Pilots visited from all over Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Ohio.

An estimated number of 1,200 people were served a large breakfast of pancakes, ham and eggs. The crowd enjoyed seeing a variety of aircraft, from drones to vintage planes. Some of these planes, like the T-6 1943 World War II trainer are a part of our nation’s history.

We talked to Craig Musser about his work as the airport manager and what it is like to fly some of these planes. Craig told us he loves the area the airport is located in because of all the beauty surrounding it.

The Fly-In Breakfast gave people a chance to fly over the Canyon and experience a few flight lessons. The weather was perfect for smooth flying throughout the afternoon. Wellsboro Home Page had the opportunity to fly with Craig, and correspondent Morgan Koziar took the role of co-pilot. Watch our video feature above to learn more and see what it’s like to be in the sky!

Another Fly-In Breakfast will be held later this year in August.
