This year’s annual Seldovia Fly-In was not advertised or posted anywhere. Someone had to tell you it was happening.
Nearly 100 aircraft landed and filled the small gravel tie-down area by Saturday morning. The usual faces and crews attended. Tents were erected, and every hotel room in the village was booked. There were no food trucks, no brands, and no ulterior agenda. This was a gathering of friends and friendly rivals.
The obligatory STOL comp dominated Saturday morning, and the crowd dutifully attended. No metal was seriously bent, though rumor has it a tailwheel may have been sacrificed to the gravel gods.
All said: blue skies, good people, burgers, and headwinds.
