The day began much different than it started. There was a call for a return fly out to Merritt Field! Our hosts, Karen and Chad, shared so much knowledge and there are still more questions.
About two hours touring the Air Museum, and about an hour or two touring the Motorcycle and Car Museum.
Lunch was a symphony of pretty-much everything homemade – Chili, Sloppy Joe, Relish…even the Oatmeal Raisin cookies.
A 1944 Stearman Navy D75 and a 1957 Piper PA-18 took to the air roaring their way around the pattern for spectators while displaying their colors and grandure ‘on the 45’.
Truly, a destination that’s a diamond in the rough! Jay Jacobs
