With half the day gone, AOPA's twelfth annual Fly-in and Open House has been a huge success. Skies have been sunny and winds light throughout the morning. The midday temperature is hovering around 90.
Thousands of visitors have wandered past the nearly four dozen aircraft on static display at Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK), and through AOPA headquarters. Hundreds have attended seminars on air safety and other topics.
By noon, more than 700 aircraft had flown in, and the infield at FDK is a sea of wings.
