Fly-in sets records

Monday, August 26, 2013 - Updated: 9:55 PM

Almost 60 aircraft flew into Piseco Airport for the annual Fly-In / Drive-In Pancake Breakfast sponsored by Speculator Lions Club Saturday, Aug. 24. So many people come for the food each year that after last year's over 600 breakfasts the Lions Club added an additional tent and seating this year. It's a good thing; they served a record-breaking 737 meals. The number of airplanes broke the record this year too; 58 flew in. Cars lined both sides of the entire access road for hours.

Rows of airplanes were lined up between the airport office and the hangars. (Photo/Cristine Meixner)
