Wanna fly to Fond du lac for breakfast?

Ah, ha!  This photo came with the news caption adhered to the back.

 "The radio and television advisor to President Eisenhower, actor Robert Montgomery, accompanied by his wife, was the guest speaker Sunday (Oct. 3, 1960) at a "fly-in" breakfast at the Fond du lac County airport to support Vice-President Nixon for the presidency.  About 250 persons in 80 private aircraft attended the breakfast."                  

Fond du lac County is in Wisconsin, at the southern end of Lake Winnebago and 68 miles from Milwaukee.  Easier to fly into Fond du lac than Milwaukee, I would imagine.  Check out Bob's lapel for the Nixon pin.  Mr. Montgomery was not a close friend of Mr. Nixon, but Mr. Montgomery was a loyal party man.  I have always liked Buffy.  You know she just loved flying to Fond du Lac, WI in October to be by her man.

So appropriate to have a fly-in in FDL. It's a stone's throw from today's EAA Oshkosh fly-in (world's largest). It's in our WI blood!

I figured I'd get your attention. And I can understand wanting to have your own plane to escape WI in the winter! (Is that called having a fly-out?)
