Starting in March, fly-ins and hamburger feeds are coming to the Hastings Municipal Airport. The events will be held on the last Saturday of each month through the end of August.
The Antique Airplane Association is hosting the events at the Hastings airport, which has doubled as their new home.
Matt Kuhr, manager for Meyers Aerial Service at the airport said there were reasons why the association found interest in Hastings.
“With our success from last year’s fly-in, the fact our airport is really growing, they looked at us as a place to drum up more support and more members,” Kuhr noted. “Plus this old hangar, that’s one of a kind left on the national historic registry…has really brought them here.”
The first fly-in will be held at the Hastings Municipal Airport March 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
On Labor Day, there will also be a fly-in held in Hastings, involving 16 planes from around the United States.
