40th ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL SEAPLANE FLY-IN
SEPT. 5-8, 2013
Listen to live traffic from Seaplane Base (123.3) and live Grandstand Announcements
"In the warming sun, we were constantly entertained by the never-ending barrage of low altitude fly-bys. What a great town this is! Cubs, Taylorcrafts, ultralights, Cessnas of all types and colors buzzing right down Main Street, all eyes upturned. But instead of folks running to the phone to call the local FAA office to report low flying aircraft, there is a reverence expressed by the onlookers, and an occasional "Oouu" or "Aaah". It seems as if everyone in this town loves airplanes.
It got me to thinking about how many thousands and thousands of times I have watched an airplane take off or land or fly by; and yet when I hear that sound, I am impelled to turn my head and watch, regardless of what is going on in my life at that moment. In Greenville, Maine, there is no shame in it. People fly, drive, walk, or canoe to this beautiful little town on the south shore of Moosehead Lake in droves from all over the country to sit on the docks, or in lawn chairs, or on the tops of their RV's, to watch airplanes. This is my kind of town." - The Great Arctic Air Adventure Blog by Mark Schoening and Doug DeVries
