2014 Northeast Regional Gathering

May 7, 2014 – Seven airplanes and one helicopter brought UFOs to the Danbury, CT airport on a beautiful spring day. A record number of 51 people registered for the event. Various obstacles narrowed the number to 39 at the tables on Wednesday, still a record number for the Northeast.

The manager and three of his crew from the tower spoke to us about the view from the high house. Many questions were asked because Danbury is what pilots who aren’t based there call “interesting”. One question that had no answer is why the powers that be found it necessary to put a light on a pole 850 ft high right on the centerline of the most active runway. Nonetheless, a good time was had by all.
