On 8 August and 12 September, we had the third and fourth barbecue-gathering at CFB Greenwood in the airpark.  General, we have 20-40 visitors who mingle, converse and eat from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday. The other two gatherings were on July 11 and 25th. After the creation of the Atlantic Canada bubble on the July 12th we had fly-in’s from New Brunswick and PEI.   The weather has been cooperating and all activities are outside.

The Fly-in to celebrate the opening of the new hangers at the Greenwood Air-park was enjoyed by an estimated 50 persons. It was great to meet and talk to friends, some of whom we had not seen for awhile.  The barbecue was interrupted briefly by a downpour that cause everyone to take cover in the hangers.  For more images of participants and aircraft see Fly-in Image Gallery
