TRAMPS HATBOX FLY IN 2017
by Bill Holland October 16, 2017The TRAMPS hosted the 16th annual Hatbox Fly In October 13-14 in Muskogee, OK. Gaines Smith and the entire TRAMPS organization did an excellent job. Pilots from throughout Oklahoma and Arkansas attended. The pilots did have a challenge dealing with winds each day. All types of aircraft were campaigned from WW1 to jets. Bill Cunningham put on a show with his huge 1/5th scale F-16 in Thunderbird colors. Saturday morning a few minutes past 7:00am nine WW1 aircraft flew their traditional Dawn Patrol flight. Olen Rutherford who is the AVP for Arkansas made is way over to Okie land again this year. Come and join the TRAMPS in 2018 for the 17th annual Hatbox Fly In!
