WINSLOW. Ariz. - Both pilots and the general public attended the free Winslow Fly-In July 27 at the Winslow-Lindbergh Regional Airport.

The day began with the Winslow Rotary Club's pancake breakfast in the airport hangar from 9-11 a.m. Additional food vendors served food until 5 p.m. The Just Cruis'n Car Club played host to a "Show-and-Shine" all day in the airport parking lot with a 1940 Fire Truck and other classic vehicles on display.

Historical displays were available for viewing in the airport hangar including an exhibit by the Old Trails Museum on Winslow airport history and a display by the Cibola Historical Society from Grants, N.M. on the Mount Taylor air disaster.
