1st Annual Milton Fly-In and Chilli Cookoff

Went to check out the 1st Milton Fly-In today.  It was a small fly-in but a good chance to get out and see some flying airplanes.  As luck would have it, of the approximately 20 airplanes that came, 2 of them were Rutan Canards.  One Long EZ and one Defiant which happens to be owned by a couple in my local EAA chapter.

There are only about 70 Rutan Defiants worldwide and the owner of this one actually has two but I understand the other is not in flying condition right now.  It was a pretty nice looking airplane.

Hopefully this will continue.  It would be nice to have a few fly-ins every year almost right in my backyard.
