Burlington CFO Flyin
July 10, 1999 saw a convoy of Cardinals headed for Burlington NC
for what was being billed as the 'first annual' CFO flyin at that
It was all put together by Brian Ward, with able assistance from
Guy Maher, seen here to the right. By all reports it was a great time.
Let's hear from Brian, who put the show together:

Before I thank each and every Cardinal owner personally
for attending the fly-in on Saturday, I would like to say
thank you on this mailing list for making the fly-in a
success! But I cannot take all of the credit.
I think everyone who heard Guy Maher speak, thoroughly
enjoyed his insights and his sense of humor (my sons
thought he was very funny). I was very lucky, from the
beginning, to have Guy's support and guidance (not to
mention, the exposure in the Southern Aviator magazine).|
I also need to recognize Alan Ostroff, the owner/operator
of Burlington Aviation who allowed me to use his FBO as
our gathering place. When I went to the airport last
Friday evening, Alan had already cleared the ramp in
anticipation of the first Cardinal (Don and Margaret Kuhn
from Florida). Alan was so excited about the turnout that
he offered to lend his support whenever I ask again.
But the main reason we had such a good time at the
Burlington Fly-In are the Cardinal owners -- a truly
special collection of men and women who allowed me to be
your host for a day!
I hope everyone had a safe trip home. And I hope to see
all of you at the next "annual" Burlington Fly-In.

Now let's hear from one of the attendees to see if what
Brian experienced was at all universal! |
Subject: Burlington Fly-in
The weekend of July 10,1999 was one to be remembered. We
have never seen so many sleek old airplanes in one place
at once. I must admit that we have never been to a
Cardinal fly-in before. It was truly a great experience.
Let me explain "great experience".
We saw airplanes that
were loved by those who fly them. We met people who were
friendly and outgoing. We were educated by knowledgeable
folks who wanted to share their wealth of information. We
were hosted by an amiable FBO owner and his able
employees. The instigator of this enjoyable day was a
fine man who did everything to secure an educational and
productive day. Brian Ward deserves a vote of thanks for
Now that I have been eloquent, let me just say that the "1st
Annual" was plain fun. It was really neat to walk around and
talk to people who shared our interests. It was super to see
the people from so many places who made the effort to look
and listen as we all waxed emotional about our "Babies".
There was more information available than my little mind
could absorb at Guy Maher's session. Lastly, everyone we met
was someone to be remembered. It would be a joy to meet
again everyone who was in attendance.
