Riding to the Cactus Fly In

Saturday morning was chilly, cloudy and grey. Perfect conditions for a ride along the back roads to Casa Grande for the 2010 Cactus Fly In.

The Cactus Fly In is an annual event at the Casa Grande Municipal Airport. All kinds of planes show up, but the event is focussed on antique airplanes. I heard about it through a strange series of events that will get their own post at a later time. Anyway, going to look at old planes seemed like a worthy reason to get out of bed on Saturday and go riding.

I wanted to do a pizza review, but Casa Grande doesn't have much in the way of local pizza. A disappointment.

But enough about that. On to the pictures!

That is one sparkly clean motor.

I just really like this photo

Pinstripes: Not just for hotrods.

Check the pirate flag flying over the Albatross.

"What are you guys up to today?"
"Sitting in these chairs we brought, maybe drinking some coffee."
"Lucky bastards."
