Silver Springs Fly In

Normally the Silver Springs Airport is a pretty deserted strip in Northern Nevada, but for one week end a year it turns into a pretty busy little place. Don and I flew there for the annual fly in. They have military fly overs, hot air balloons, music and food and lots of planes coming and going. To intice pilots to bring their planes, they serve a free pancake breakfast for pilots. Don and I were the second to arrive after an ultra light. They had ramp marshalls just like in the big airport to help park all the planes and a local air controler. We were welcomed by four children who directed us to the registration area, after climbing around in the Musketeer for a while.

We finished our pancakes, watched a few planes fly over and land and then a twenty minute flight back to Minden. It was a great way to start the Saturday.
