Pancake Breakfast/Airshow/Miata Car Show/Free Airplane Rides/Ice Cream Run 6/12/22

When -                   Sunday, June 12, 2022

                                  Arrive:      9:00 a.m. at Pegasus Airpark (Breakfast begins)

Where -                  Pegasus Airpark

                                  222 Hickory Lane

                                  Saylorsburg, PA  Location (between Brodheadsville & Sciota)

NOTE that there will be no organized drive from the Lehigh Valley to the Airpark! 

This is a repeat of last year's successful event!  Your Miata gets to be in a car show with other Miatas only. You get a great breakfast for $7.  There is a free airshow.  Kids ages 8-17 get to go up in plane for free!  Then, when you think that you are all funned out... we will head for ice cream on a great bunch of Miata roads.

The Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 839 has again invited LVMOC to an airshow and pancake breakfast at Pegasus Airpark, a small turf airfield near Stroudsburg. The EAA 839 mission statement is:

"Chapter 839 is passionate in enjoying aviation with others who have a similar interest and the desire to share aviation with the local community through fly-ins, picnics, workshops, Young Eagle rallies and more. We are an Active Chapter with a hangar and lots of exciting projects in the works."

To those ends, they have a pancake breakfast on Sunday, June 12, 2022 to raise funds for their operations.  We have been invited, as a Club, to display our cars in a special section, to show off our sportscars, and our Club.  In addition, they offer to take children aged 8-17, who are with their parents (to sign paperwork), for a free ride in an airplane.   Here are some photos of our group at last year's event.

BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!  After we are done enjoying the airshow, we will launch from there in a drive back to a yet-to-be-determined ICE CREAM destination!

Please come and attend.  This will only cost $7.00 (alright, $10 if you round up for a good cause), to see an airshow, be the star of a car show, have your son or daughter up in a plane, and have a fun ride back for ice cream!

Again, the location of Pegasus Airpark is 222 Hickory Lane SAYLORSBURG (MAKE SURE YOUR GPS DOES NOT CHANGE IT TO STROUDSBURG).  For a link to the EAA Chapter 839 homepage and directions, click here .

We will use FRS radios for communications on the return drive.

Thanks for the heads-up about Railfest, Brian!  I'll add that to my calendar for June 11.

@flying-dutchman I'm not sure exactly how "Special" the events will be as nothing concrete had been announced,  but hopefully there will be something cool to offer the public.

I went up last year. It was super cool. We circled the city at 80 mph. It felt like we were in a hot air balloon, just floating there. They will love it.

I've been up in a WWII era, open cockpit Stearman biplane out of Van Sant.  I knew the pilot did aerobatics so I asked him to show me what the plane could do, so he did a hard banked turn down and to the right.  After regaining altitude he asked me if I wanted to do a barrel roll.  Of course I did and he did, over Lake Nockamixon.  He then asked me if I wanted to do a loop.  I asked, "Inside or outside?"  He replied that he only did inside, so I told him to go for it.  He then lined us up over the Delaware and did the inside loop.  Awesome flight!

I've been up in a helicopter seated to the right of the pilot with the door next to me removed.  He thought it would be funny to do a hard banked turn to the right - I banked left!

Tough to top those 2 flights.  However, I had the following experience in a single engine, high wing back in the '70s.

I flew with 2 pilots out of a small airport NE of Trenton, NJ.  Pilot A flew us to the airport outside of Long Beach Island.  Since it had no taxiway, after landing, he turned around to taxi back up the runway only to find another plane coming in low for a landing - we did a quick u-turn!  Whew.

After that, pilot B took control and we were flying north, over the Atlantic, along LBI's beach.  I was seated in the back on the right side and I looked out the window to see a big Air Force transport, on it's way to McGuire, heading at us at 4:30 level - about 1/2 mile off.  I yelled that info to pilot B.  He looks over his shoulder, yells !@#$, hits the throttle and climbed to safety.  Whew.

So we get back to the airport we started from.  Its runway runs west to east and there is a strong breeze coming from the north west.  For some reason pilot B looped around the airport in a clockwise direction to land east to west, but that breeze blew the plane south of the runway.  So he's crabbing the plane at an angle into the breeze to get in line with the runway as we're making our approach.  He's still at an angle when we touch down and I don't know what he did, but the next thing I saw was the wing on my side (remember this is a high wing) almost touch the ground.  Yikes!  Pilot A, took the controls, hit the throttle and took off.  He then brought the plane around for a normal landing.  Whew! 

I think a nice, calm flight would still be exciting for the kids.
