On Saturday, September 2, Roger Deming hosted his annual fly-in event at Arthur Aerodrome Damascus Field (CDF6).

This picturesque grass strip is located to the north-northeast of Arthur, Ontario. The field boasts a 2,006-foot north-south runway, capable of accommodating nearly any light aircraft, and an east-west runway spanning 1,500 feet.

Despite the blustery winds that discouraged some pilots from attending, it was another splendid day filled with captivating aircraft. Nevertheless, the local community showed strong support, and it provided a delightful opportunity to reconnect with old friends. Everyone was warmly welcomed, regardless of their mode of transportation.

A heartfelt thanks goes out to Roger Deming and his sisters, Tanya and Paula, for their gracious hospitality and generosity in offering complimentary food and beverages to all attendees.
