Despite being rained out on Saturday, the Cavalcade of Planes was a great success for the Club on Sunday, June 5th. Coordinated by past Club president Joe Mahr (center below).Our participation gave hundreds of people an opportunity to experience and discuss gyroplanes with Joe, Rich and Mike Vitt, George Smundin, Larry Zimmerman, and Paul Polster, president of PRA Chapter 47, McHenry, IL who joined us for the whole day (thanks Paul).
Like at the last Cavalcade, our visitors were a combination of fixed-wing pilots interested gyros and families looking for a photo opportunity for the kids. In either case, it was a great opportunity to experience gyros first hand on a beautiful day.
Our special thanks to Addison Mullins, a model specializing in photographs with WWII aircraft in vintage military costume, for joining us briefly and allowing us to photograph her on Joe’s gyro between her photo sessions elsewhere at the event.
