Sequim’s annual homage to the skies once again took flight this weekend.
Organizers of the fifth Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire and Sequim Valley Fly-In said at least 3,000 people attended the event on Aug. 26-27, held at the Sequim Valley Airport.
“We were pleased,” co-organizer Emily Westcott said. “You couldn’t beat the weather.”
Westcott estimated the event hosted about 75 planes on Saturday, including antique planes from the Port Townsend Aero Museum and six planes from the Blackjack Squadron of Arlington.
Other features included remote control plane demonstrations, a “Wings and Wheels” car show, food, music, hot air balloon rides, helicopter rides and more.
Westcott said for the sixth Air Affaire Fly-In, they want to add parachute jumpers while bringing back the Ageless Aviation program, more antique planes and more helicopter rides.
