Vintage Sailplane Fly-in at the Massey Air Museum
After spending 44 years in commercial aviation, Captain Willie Dykes takes his first glider flight ever as part of the Vintage Sailplane Association‘s fly-in at the Massey Air Museum in Kent County, MD.
There are many historic aircraft displayed outside and inside. There is also a fully operational machine shop and paint shop inside where they are rebuilding or repainting aircraft. Capt. Willie is ready to cross something off his bucket list – riding in a glider. A sailplane, or glider, has no motor and is capable of soaring in rising air.
Massey Air Museum is open to the public year-round. It is a non-profit organization, but donations are encouraged.
