Last weekend I flew the Waco down to Antique Airfield near Blakesburg, IA, for the AAA/APM annual fly-in.  Thought y'all might like to see a few pictures taken from the cockpit during the flight.

Cheers!

Joe

Joe -

One of the best uses of this forum is to swap flying stories, and one of the best ways to do that is through gorgeous pictures like yours and Adam's. In honor of that and the fact that sharing pictures here just got a little easier, I'm giving the nod to your post and to the thread it started.

Thanks as always for your participation!

I shall exercise the new photo feature for the first time by posting photos of my own trip to Blakesburg, with an overnight camping stop at Iowa County airport (highly recommended, super friendly airport manager & airport community).

Pictures all shot on phone so not great quality.  Note cropduster in first one.

Jason, it wasn't long out of Oshkosh, maybe 10 miles south east something like that.
