Around the Field, Tuesday

Tuesday's column:

Each year about this time, everything aviation blossoms in our small community here at Wittman Field.

A half-dozen boys are throwing around a football on the North 40 taxiway. A really big brat grill is servicing the Cessna pilots at the west end. Folding chairs, sun umbrellas, cameras, radios, bikes, and aviation fans gather along the fence, watching the planes land. A twin does a fine job S-turning, to stay behind slower traffic, and gets a big round of applause as it comes over the numbers.
