Hudson Fly-In kicks off fourth annual event this weekend

by Lorien Nettleton ~ May 16th, 2013

The fourth-annual Cliff Hudson Fly-in kicks off this weekend, heralding a weekend of flight oriented events dedicated to one of the pilots who helped put Talkeetna on the map.

Sassan Mossanen is one of the event coordinators. He says part of the goal is to highlight the significance of the Talkeetna State Airport, and bring a different kind of user to town for the weekend.

Visitors can take a stroll through the airport grounds to see some historic warbirds, like a Japanese world war two Mitsubishi “Zero,” a T-6 “texan,” an L-6 Grasshopper, and a Fairchild American Pilgrim

Other weekend events will include a silent Auction over two days to benefit Talkeetna Build-A-Plane. A whole range of goods are available, from home-made crafts, to gift certificates for flight-seeing,and all things in between. According to Mossanen, the number of people involved has grown every year.
