Aircraft are flying in to find their spots and tractor-trailer rigs are headed in every direction as items as diverse as a free-standing hangar door and intricate aircraft models are delivered to their places.
Volunteers are everywhere, rigging signs, delivering water, and sprucing up the grounds - all in anticipation of the first big flying of the year. Continue reading "On Your Mark... Get Set..."
