Commemorative Air Force Pancake Breakfast
Overhead New Hanger
From the CAF website:

"On the Fourth Saturday of every month, the Old Dominion Squadron along with the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 339 host a pancake breakfast in our hanger at the Franklin Airport. Everybody is invited to join us and no matter if you fly or drive in there is plenty of parking. We normally stert serving at 8AM and finish around 11AM."

We are new to the area and were looking for flying destinations when we came across this Pancake Breakfast. They hold this monthly (except December) and all they ask for is a $6 donation per plate. The food was great and even though the snow and winds seem to have kept the fly-in guest numbers limited, the hangar was full of people who had driven and even ridden a motorcycle in. Young and old aviation enthusiasts ate and enjoyed talking about the Stinson OY-1 Sentinel and
Ryan PT-22 Recruit in the insulated and comfortably heated hangar. They tell me that the summer turn-outs are pretty phenomenal. I can hardly wait!

This is a recurring event
The fourth Saturday of every month. Schedule runs from Wednesday, January 1, 2014, with no scheduled end date
