A couple of our Grand-kids (Joseph and Delaney seated beside the guy in the brown sweater)had decided they would like to go with PawPaw Corey for an outing and maybe a chance to go by airplane.
Hubby and his friend were keeping their eyes on the weather forecast to see about getting the friend's plane out to take a hop. The 8:00 A.M. hour arrived on Saturday - time to make the choice to head it into the clouds, or leave it in the hangar ...

The decision came down. Leave the plane in the hangar. Weather wasn't the problem at the beginning of the day, but could possibly make the return a little more difficult than they had hoped. Frozen precipitation had been spotted on the radar to the Northwest.
Hopping in the car, all of them took off to add support to the little museum's wintertime fund raising event; giving aid to keeping the memories alive of outstanding Iowa Aviators in the Hall of Fame ...
|Joseph kept on the move checking things over|
It was definitely cold, both on the ground and in the air, a great day for getting together with fellow pilots to linger in the ambiance of a well stocked hangar.

Our future Aviators didn't even have to leave the ground to have contagious smiles to share.
Passing through Iowa on vacation?
The museum is located off Interstate 80 at exit 86. Take highway IA - 25 south to Airport Rd,located north of the City of Greenfield.
Airplane enthusiasts,or people like me interested in learning something new, will certainly enjoy stopping to checkout their displays.
Oh! While you are in the vicinity go on into town to visit.Greenfield has another distinction to add to their list. Back in 1969, their town square played host to the movie "Cold Turkey"... ;)
