A bright blue sky and warm temperatures accompanied today's Fly Day at Paine Field. Its hard to want to stay indoors with such a good weather briefing. And pilots and aircraft a like felt the same way. It was a busy day at KPAE. Current construction on Runway 34R/16L means that the western Runway 34L/16R is the only active runway for General Aviation, Flight Schools, Boeing Test Flights, NAS Whidbey F-18 Hornets and the Vintage aircraft housed at Paine Field. Amongst the GA traffic a few Boeing 787s, 777, 747s also returned from the wild blue yonder .
The Collings Foundation is in town over Father's Day Weekend which added to the resident aircraft buzzing the shoreline of Mukilteo which included B-17, B-25, B-25, P-51, P-51, P-47 and a Mig-29.
The next Fly Day will be on June 29th at 12pm featuring Hellcat and Zero for "Pacific Legends Day"
