The local GA airport, Wings Field (KLOM), hosted its annual Wings and Wheels show last September, and I took the family and my camera there for the afternoon. Given the gloomy weather that day, I think things looked pretty good. I’ve wanted to share my pictures here since then, but hemmed and hawed over actually requesting posting privs. Until now, that is.

The show didn’t follow any particular theme, folks just brought what they got, and some really had something interesting. There were assorted classic planes.

I understand why they parked the R8 next to the Vision, but I think it makes the scene look garish.

There was even a Miata. A yellow one, even!

I spent an inordinate amount of time gawking at this O-1, and then more crowds came and I couldn’t take more pictures of it.

I might attend the next one in September this year, and if so I’ll venture to share the pictures here.

Some more pictures that I took. Unfortunately I did not get to photograph everything, and not all of my pictures came out that great.
