N47 (Pottstown Municipal) Flyin 9/28/13

....so maybe the Reading fly-in had so few planes because many more showed up at the N47 fly-in just down the road. In fact, at least 2 of the planes that flew into RDG later came to N47. There were about 30 planes at N47 and lots of people (and even a "controller" perched on the roof of the hanger to make sure the planes got in and out smoothly). It looked like there were many more planes then there were because many were giving free rides to kids (courtesy of the Young Eagles program). So a lot of Pipers, Cessnas and even a Yak were up and down all day. Believe it or not that was my first event at N47 and only the 2nd time I'd ever driven by. Pottstown Municipal is not to be confused with PTW (Heritage Field) a few miles away on the Limerick side of Pottstown. Turns out N47 an interesting airport with a Bellanca dealership and repair station. I'll be back on a normal day to see what's around.
