Sedalia Regional Airport Celebrates 60th Year
The Sedalia Regional Airport celebrated their 60th anniversary with an open house and fly-in on Saturday (September 22). Many came out early to see the planes come in as sunrise came and enjoy the pancakes, sausage, orange juice and coffee served up by Chris Cakes.
I sat down to watch Chris Cakes flip pancakes to people as they came through the line. Some were in amazement as the cakes flipped as high as the ceiling at times. While families gathered, there was lots of excitement in kids getting the chance to fly in the air with the Young Eagles program. This program allows kids the opportunity to be in a plane, fly around the airport and city and learn about aviation from pilots.
In addition to the planes, the Harley Owners Group came to the airport to not only enjoy the breakfast and admire the planes on the runway but also show off their motorcycles. There were also classic cars on display.
The Fly-in went through the whole day. Many also took advantage of riding in a helicopter with Johnny Rowlands, who came back after a very successful first year last year.
