GETTING READY: Chris Hopkins and Shawn Shanower, both of Middlefield, make a low pass in a 1941 Ryan ST airplane. The men flew the plane Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's fly-in and cookout at Warren Skeets Airport. The airport, on Herr Fieldhouse Road in Southington, is owned by the pilots who use it. At right, four pilot-shareholders, from left, Ken Morelli, George Antonell, Rick Phillips and Don Shingler, stand at the ready. The 55th anniversary picnic is open to the public. Activities begin about 1 p.m. Donations will be accepted to cover the cost of the food and beverages.
