Video: grass strip fly-in at Lee Bottom Flying Field

0

Flying isn’t just about airplanes and technology; it’s also about community and history. In this week’s fun flying video, take a step back in time at Lee Bottom Flying Field, a grass strip on the banks of the Ohio River. Every fall, the privately-owned, public-use airport hosts a fly-in for the “extended family” of pilots, with an emphasis on vintage aircraft. You’ll see the beautiful airport, meet some of the volunteers and learn why flying really is all about freedom.
