Wings, Wheels and Whatever Held at Wellsboro-Johnston Airport

The Canyon Country Ultralight Club, USUA Club 203, held the 2nd annual Wings, Wheels and Whatever event at N38 in Wellsboro Pa. on June 12.  This is a gathering of toys that burn fossil fuel.  You have to admit that there are a lot of cool toys that burn gas!!  We wanted to give folks a chance to show some of them off and promote activity at the airport.  Below are a few photos to enjoy.

H. Paul Shuch Ph.D., CFII and his light sport SportStar were on hand to give Intro. Flights to those who wanted to have instruction in the left seat.  Check out Paul's site at http://www.avsport.org/  Paul operates a flight school at historic William T. Piper Airport http://www.piperairport.com/ in Lock Haven.  Paul specializes in Sport Pilot training.

Hit and Miss Engines were a hit

 Gas burning toys did not have all the fun.  There was a bike race also.  The airport was closed for about 45 minutes while the bikes headed down the taxi way and back down runway 10 to start the race.

A big thank you goes out to all who participated, planned and organized this years event.
