WINSLOW, Ariz. - The second annual Winslow High Desert Fly-In took place July 26, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Winslow Airport. The event included a pancake breakfast, aircraft fly-in, aircraft related displays and safety classes for interested people.

The Old Trails Museum, city of Winslow, Winslow Rotary Club, Winslow Airport Commission, Just Crusi'n Car Club and Wiseman Air sponsored the event. About 40 airplanes visited Winslow and more than 300 people attended the Fly-In. Many people came out just to enjoy the ambience of this historic airport.

Transcontinental Air Transport (TAT) founded the Winslow Airport in 1929). Aviator Charles Lindbergh, who served as the head of TAT's Technical Committee, chose Winslow as one of twelve critical re-fueling stops on the nation's first transcontinental passenger line.

For many years the airpost was the only all weather airport between Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Los Angeles. The United States Army Air Forces Air Transport Command used the airport during World War II to refuel and repair planes.
