Before lunch and the competition events, many pilots join club president Gary Tackett in a flying tour of the city of Westfield.
Here is member Rudy Alvies, announcer for today's festivities, highlighting the events. After leading everyone in singing the National Anthem, he proposed a moment of silence for aviators that have perished in pursuit of their dream of flying. Two pilots, Nathaniel Halsmer and Ben Seal were close to several Indy Flyer members and will be greatly missed. Heads were bowed and a moment of silence was observed.
The first planned event was the tour d' Westfield where the pilots are to take a flight around the city of Westfield. Here are some of the pilots and their aircraft that participated:
