Horn Point Fly-In, Saturday, May 22, 2004.
It was rained out four years in a row..but this year they 'aced' it. Bright sunshine and happy airplane lovers. What more could you ask?
The 37th annual Horn Point Fly-In had all the trappings of a great success. The event, scheduled each year for Horn Point Aerodrome near Cambridge, MD, is sponsored by the Potomac Antiques Aerosquadron and the Dorchester Heritage Museum. The field belongs to the U of Maryland, which lends it happily, according to chairman, Mike Strieter. Antique and/or Vintage aircraft come from near and far to show off..and a good time is had by all.
Mike says this is the oldest airplane at the show, a 1929 Great Lakes that's been in the same Salisbury, MD family since 1930.

Picnic "in the shade of the old Aeronca Champ.."
You can't have a fly-in without a Stearman. It's illegal. This one really does the job.
A gorgeous 1940, 65 hp Luscombe, restored by the Shanks of Easton, MD for their son, who used it to build time toward his commercial ticket. Audry Shank says her favorite part is the wing fabric, which she sewed and fitted. The Shanks used to have an aviation business in Indiana.
Oh, Baby..ain't we got fun?
The Luscombe's front office.
Can't beat it with a stick. The mighty Stinson Reliant.
Yep, it doesn't get any better than that. See you next year at Horn Point.
