Frequent contributor Albert Dyer sent in this photo, with this explanation: “Brodhead Wisconsin has an airport (C37) that is perhaps the embodiment of what grassroots aviation is all about. There is a very active EAA chapter (EAA Chapter 431). It also has a small museum housing some very, very rare aircraft and cars. It’s also known within the Hatz & Pietenpol Air Camper community as the place to ask questions, build and fly these types of aircraft.
“In May, Chapter 431 held a pancake breakfast. I overheard that 1,100 people were served. The museum too, opened its doors and brought out some of its aircraft and cars, which just added to all the other antiques and classic cars that drove in. The majority of aircraft that flew in had a tail wheel and were older than most of their pilots that flew them to breakfast.
Pictured in the photo front to back are two Curtiss-Wright Travel Airs, a Franklin Sport and a Stearman C3-B.”
