Crisfield Municipal Airport

"Thousands of volumes have been written about aviation, but we do not automatically have thousands of true and special friends in their authors. That rare writer who comes alive on a page does it by giving of himself, by writing of meanings, and not just of fact or of things that have happened to him. The writers of flight who have done this are usually found together in a special section on private bookshelves."
~  Richard Bach, Flying magazine,1968

This post is for all you "fly-boys/gals" out there. This past weekend, Friends of the Airport hosted another crab feast fly-in. On the menu, all-you-could-eat-crabs and corn. I got there there a little early, and planes were still coming in. You can contact the airport for information on upcoming events at: 410.968.1333.  Call ahead and the airport will have a taxi waiting to take you into Crisfield.

Someone offered to take me up for aerials, but I could not stay long. Email me, and I will make arrangements. Boy, will I make arrangements! I love flying. My uncle, who was an Air Force pilot, used to take me up in his stunt plane. I have also photographed aerials, and was fortunate enough to have flown in several Vietnam-era Huey helicopters. There is nothing as exciting as rotor wash. I love it! And I hope you love the following photos.



I did not read his tee-shirt until I uploaded this photo. I love it. No, he was not fussing at me. He was joking with me. I thought I was the only one with a list that that. Just joking.

These people rode in for the show.

And stayed for the crabs.

Phoebe cuts up for the camera. If you ever stay at Janes Island State Park during the summer months, you have most likely seen her smiling face in the office. Without the corn, of course.

Crisfield Municipal Airport. Won't you fly in and visit us one day?

Love the pictures. We had a great time eating crabs and watching all the planes come in. We forgot our camera! Thanks so much Patty.
