Pancakes and planes featured at this year’s Fly In
By Sierra Moeykens
Goodwill Pancake Breakfast served pancakes on a warm, windy Saturday morning June 27 at the Mercer County Regional Airport just a mile east of Hazen, where pilots from all around came to fly. The visiting period began at 7 a.m. and ended at noon.
About 10 air vehicles were brought in, including helicopters and small airplanes, and visitors could sit nearby to watch the pilots show off while enjoying breakfast supplied by Goodwill Pancake Breakfast.
A local pilot, Jordan Dyke, said that, although the wind was acting up a little, the weather was perfect for flying. Wes Berg and Max Amdston gave rides, and other visitors who remained on the ground could watch as their friends and family were brought up into the sky and returned to the runway.
