Minnesota Fly-In Celebrates 45 Years

Aug 09, 2013 No Comments by

Milaca Airport patrons and guests expect anywhere from 100 to 150 airplanes to land Saturday and Sunday during the annual Fly-In at Milaca, Minn.

In its 45th year, the Fly-In attracts planes big and small, reconstructed or built by hand, old and new. The two-day event offers camping and a hearty breakfast served Sunday morning by the Milaca American Legion. Airport Commissioner Ken Muller said it’s an event you won’t want to miss.

“There are some people who fly in and stay over night,” Muller said. “They camp out under the wings.” In the past, Muller said the Fly-In has included a hot-air balloon ride with the Prisoners of War, Missing in Action balloon. That event has been canceled several times during the past few years due to weather concerns.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
