Lincoln AirFest June 10, 2017

We had a full crew of chapter volunteers working on Thursday evening to get the airport ready, including Elyse Bingham (at left) and Cherish Bruce.

We served about 230
people at the pancake breakfast hosted by the chapter. Two of the helpful chapter volunteer were Michelle Sigur (at left) and Elena Yen

The Lincoln AirFest was held on Saturday, June 10. The skies were clear and the weather mild. The large crowd was treated to a variety of display aircraft and airshow acts. Our EAA chapter was instrumental in helping put the event together, from ramp layout to crowd control to serving up a popular pancake breakfast. We also had an informational booth set up to help spread the word about the chapter and just talk to visitors. The first chapter members were on the ramp before 06:00 am and there were still EAA chapter guys cleaning up into the evening.

Our chapter booth was in the vendor area. We passed out information about the chapter and talked to many visitors. That’s Bill Wootton’s RV-6 elevator reject propped up on display.

Our own Tony K. served as the ground boss for the AirFest and could be seen often scooting through the crowds taking care of business. All reports say he did an outstanding job.

A chapter painting party on the prior Saturday creates airfield markers to satisfy FAA requirements for the aerobatic box.
