It started as a joke. That's what Beechcraft Fly-in organizer Rich Campbell and his wife said as they sat in the warm terminal at Lancaster, PA (LNS) Airport waiting to see how many fellow Beech owners would arrive on a frigid Winter day. The Campbells say three years ago they invited members of the Eastern Beech Club to "Shake off the frost" and fly in to LNS. The first year the turnout was good, even better last year with about 30 planes making the event. Unfortunately, morning snow showers and icy winds kept this year's gathering to only eight planes. They had a guest speaker and lunch for those who braved the weather. Let's hope for better weather and more Beechcrafts next January. This was the first of two events at LNS. The airport is hosting a "Cabin Fever Fly-in" on Sat. Feb. 1st. If the weather holds out, there should be some nice stuff. I'll be there and will have all the pictures.
