Henning fly-in a buzz with big crowds

Cool and calm, the morning turned out to be a perfect one to make a landing in Henning.

Crowds clamored for pancakes and watched with wonderment the endless traffic of planes stopping off at the Henning Airport Saturday, July 17, for the 38th annual Henning Fly-In and Dine-In Breakfast.

Organizers agreed the crowds were far larger than expected as planes filled the field and hungry guests kept a line stretched out for much of the morning waiting for a pancake breakfast and a chance to win raffle drawings. Weather is often the biggest opponent of the event, but this year brought splendid conditions for a flight through lakes country.
