Burlington CFO Flyin


0001.jpg 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 location.

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.

0005.jpg 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.

-Brian '71 FG

P.S. Unofficial count: 34 airplanes/65 beautiful people.


Now let's hear from one of the attendees to see if what Brian experienced was at all universal!

0002.jpg 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 the effort.

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.
