Moose Lake Fly-In attracts aircraft abundantly

Moose Lake Fly-In June 17, 2017

It was a day to fly, to be sure. The June Fly-In Breakfast at the Moose Lake Carlton County Airport brought people out in droves, not only to eat pancakes and see the wide variety of aircraft, but to pay homage to people who affect aviation.

From Ted Philman's family who received a plaque on his behalf for his contribution to sustaining the Moose Lake Carlton County Airport. Cirrus Aircraft employees Alexey Belkin and Brendon Butkiewicz arrived in the Cirrus SR20 with the Breast Cancer Ribbon on the tail in honor of Butkiewivz's grandmother. Ava Waldo who is seven years old, said her name was taken from the word aviation so she was very willing to accompany her sister Jaina, brother Oscar, and Auntie Victoria to the Fly-In to see what might spark her interest.

Keith and Lana Newman, and Lisa and Tracy Matuseski, stand together as the ladies hold the plaque recognizing their father, Ted Philman's contributions to the Moose Lake-Carlton County Airport. The plaque will be mounted on a boulder next to the Federal Government static display of a 1967 Cobra helicopter that Philman arranged to become the marker to the entrance of the airport. Pictured far right is county commissioner Gary Peterson who conducted the presentation.
