While stranded in Ohio I've found a few things to do when I'm not doing homework or doing actual work from Florida. This weekend was the Experimental Aircraft Association's Mid-East Regional Fly-In in Urbana, OH. There were approximately 75 aircraft in attendance representing a good mix of homebuilts, certified, and a few warbird aircraft. In attendance, and I think based there at a museum, was the only flying Pitcairn Autogiro from the 30's. This was the predecessor of the modern helicopter. Click hear to read about what its like to fly. the Pitcairn Autogiro made an appearance in the movie " It Happened One Night " staring Clark Gable. Here are some pics.
