Come on out for the sweet scent of Avgas and awll. It’s an excuse to get together, spin some yarns, get out your hardware, chow down and celebrate Friends, Aircraft / Flight and collector cars. If you have a plane or unique car – please bring it and bring a good story … it will not be fact checked.
My dad soloed me at the Joliet airport on December 26 (can’t remember the year) but it’s too cold to celebrate then so this is a June 26, 2021 half year Wings & Wheels party at “T” hangar L11 which is the most north and east “T” hangar at the airport. It starts at 11:30. If you fly in there is parking and if you drive a collector car we will park you on the ramp in front of L 11. The 90 year old airport is located at 4000 West Jefferson (Rt 52). There will be food and a food truck but ONLY if you RSVP.
There is no agenda, presentation, speech or magic show. There will be non-vegan comfort food available IF you RSVP. Live guitar.
EAA, CAF, amphibs, FoMoCo / Shelby, Mopar, GM, Piper, Cessna, Beech, Grumman, Stearman, White Sox, and even cubs fans are welcome.
PLEASE READ / CONFIRM / RESPOND:
a) what car / plane will you bring?
b) how many in your party?
c) any additional people / collector car / plane and their contact who might accompany you?
d) do you need additional information?
e) send a picture of your ride / lift
