2008 saw the 25th edition of the well known International Old Timer Fly-In organised by the Schaffen Aeroclub. The weather and the success was at the "rendez-vous", Many participants were coming from all over European countries like Germany, France, England, Netherland, Luxemburg, Switzerland and even from Sweden.
It was a great gathering and wonderful days for photographers to capture the many Piper Cubs, Boeing Stearman and others Yaks in perfect conditions.
Moreover, it was also a gathering of old timers like Cadillacs, Chevrolets and military vehicles. Souvenirs shops where also present and the proof of the great success of this event were all the people buying patches, models and other items.
If you are an airplane fan, this is an event you have to see once in your lifetime. You will have no regrets spending your day at Schaffen.
The next one, certainly to be held at the same dates next year...so, do not miss it.
