… has been revived. When Ed Marquart passed away, we found in his papers the charter of the “Riverside Valley Chapter” of the Antique Airplane Association. When we were next at Blakesburg we talked to AAA Founder Bob Taylor and son Brent, saying that the chapter seemed to have gone dormant years ago but that there was a new spirit at Flabob and we planned to revive it. And so we have.
The now-named “Flabob Chapter” has its own clubrooms, behind the black door in the “log cabin” hangars toward the east end of the field, and meets there on the third Tuesday of every month at 10 a.m. All who are interested in antique and classic airplanes and aviation are welcome.
In 2012, the Chapter presented its inaugural Flabob Flying Circus, a three-day extravaganza of old airplanes and those who love them. The 2013 event will be on September 26 – 28. Read all about it and sign up at … Flabob Flying Circus.
