The Saint Catherine Photo Experience - Doylestown Barnstormers 3D Meltdown

I made it out to the Doylestown Barnstormers annual event - the Spring Fling 3D Meltdown. Cathy Nickler was kind enough to take plenty of photos of this laid-back giant-scale fly-in.

This will be my third visit down to the Doylestown Barnstormers annual fly-in: the Spring Fling 3D Meltdown. The event ran from Friday the 2nd through Sunday the 4th, and although it's primarily labeled as a 3D event, there' was flying of all types going on. Saturday is the big day as far as turnout goes, but big is a relative term; the Spring Fling has always been a somewhat intimate event with local and regional pilots showing up for the weekend to fly and converse among well-known friends and family. In my opinion, this is the allure of the Spring Fling 3D Meltdown. Coming down off the high of Joe Nall, it's a refreshing change of pace to drive out to Doylestown and fly at this smaller venue. There's never any wait at the flight line (unless you count common courtesy for the pilot putting on a show for the spectators). Did I mention the staff and how awesome they are?! The Mark and Patti Sivard put on one heck of a show and keep everyone well fed in the process! I can't thank you enough for your very warm hospitality that I always receive.

Photos from Cathy Nickler (Saint Catherine)

Cathy Nickler is pretty easy to spot an any event: she's the girl riding the off-road Segway while firing her camera in the process! Cathy is an excellent photographer and captures events quite well. A BIG thanks from the FlyingGiants crew for allowing us to use your photos from the event!
