Yesterday I visited Wiscasset Municipal Airport (KIWI, in Wiscasset, ME) where the Maine Aeronautics Association had organized a fly-in. The “star” of the event was Commemorative Air Force’s “Red Tail” squadron‘s touring exhibit “Rise Above” (about the Tuskegee airmen), complete with their P-51D Mustang. However, there were a number of interesting aircraft on display. The entire event had a pleasant, laid-back feeling that I felt was appropriate for summertime Maine.
Maine has many lakes and sure enough a number of amphibious float-planes were present. I was happy to also see a number of classic and vintage aircraft. Despite its small scale, the event provided a nice showcase of all types of general aviation.
