Big Crowd Attends Wellsboro Johnston Airport Event

The Canyon Pilots Association with assistance of the Canyon Country Ultralight Club served well over 1,000 breakfasts at their annual Memorial Day fly-in breakfast at the Wellsboro/Johnston airport, located in the heart of Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon country.  Great weather, great food and another great effort by all made this one largest breakfast's ever.

There were a few highlights of the day.  Helicopter rides were available beginning at 10:00am.  The Robinson R-44 pilot was still giving rides well into the afternoon.  There was a light sport instructor there from Lock Haven giving Discovery Flights and a few folks learned that there is now flight instruction available at N38.
A big thank you to everyone who helped!!  There are too many folks to name but you know who you are.  Thank you and please enjoy the photos below:

Motorcycle owners from all over the Twin Tiers make our breakfast a traditional destination

Hungry folks joined a line almost 100 yard long.  The line moves quickly and nobody seems to mind the wait as aircraft fly in and out while they wait

This WWII trainer was one of the planes on display
