Over 100 planes flew into the Colusa County Airport on Saturday, July 19, for the 18th Annual Old Tyme Fly-In hosted by the Colusa County Aviation Association.
“We had a great turnout.” said association member, Paul Sankey, “people come from all over to participate in this event,”
Noting that he believes that the furthest person to travel to the event was from Klamith Falls, Oregon.
The event started at 7:30 a.m. with a breakfast for the pilots and the community.
“I heard it was a great breakfast,” said Sankey, “many people enjoyed it.”
In 1996, Harry Krug spearheaded the idea of the event.
“We host the event to bring the aviation association together and to bring public awareness on what goes on out at the airport.” said Sankey.
Other activities include a raffle prize, and a peoples choice award.
“We had great support from the community this year with our raffle prizes,” said Sankey.
The peoples choice award was given to a Grumann G-21 Goose.
“I would like to thank everyone who helped make the event a success, all of the volunteers, and the pilots who participated,” said
Sankey, “I would also like to thank all of the businesses and community members who’ve donated to the raffle.”
