Chariton Airport Fly-In Breakfast is Sept. 7

Bill Baer and Dr. Ken Anderson stand beside Dr. Anderson’s plane, a 1967 Cessna 210. This plane has a 280 horsepower motor, retractable gear and cruises at 160 knots (180 mph). It will be on display at the Chariton Airport Fly-In on Sept. 7.

The Chariton Airport Fly-In Breakfast will be held Saturday, Sept. 7. Friends of the Chariton Airport and Tourism Lucas County sponsor this event. There will be aircraft displays, skydivers, free plane rides for children ages 8-17 (prior registration required), and other activities.

Breakfast consisting of biscuits with sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, bananas, orange juice and coffee will be served from 8 a.m. –11 a.m. for a cost of $5. This event is sponsored annually in order to promote aviation and to invite everyone to come out and visit the airport in Lucas County. The Young Eagles program is included in order to generate an interest in flying in the youth of our community. Pilots from around the area come to Chariton for this event.

Everyone is welcome to come out for the breakfast, see the airplanes on display, and watch skydivers. Many different styles of planes will be at the airport along with a CVFD fire truck and LCHC ambulance. For the younger kids, activities include a free foam airplane decorating station and giveaway.
