Day at the Hangar

The weather could not have been more ideal for Ken Kresmery's 16th Annual Day at the Hangar at Poplar Grove Airport on Sunday, August 21. At least thirty CTCC members and guests joined Ken's other friends to enjoy the abundance of sweet corn, brats, soft serve ice cream and drinks provided by Ken and the seemingly never-ending array of salads, side dishes and desserts contributed by the attendees. Our little 'Birds looked great lined up on the grass along the hangar taxiway next to Ken's collection of antique cars available for driving. This year, Bob Hoge left his key in the ignition of his '56 and looked up to see it being driven around the airport. Bill Werth gave his key to his daughters and each of them took his '55 for a spin with their kids as passengers, which drew alerts from some who were unaware of the arrangement.
Larry Johnson and Sue I'Hommedieu arrived in Larry's 1978 Cessna Skyhawk, a four-seat, single-engine, high-wing fixed-wing aircraft. Larry gave many flights to CTCC members and friends while Sue kept his parking spot on the grass. We thank Larry and Sue for this generous gift.
