    Another Successful Flying Santa Flyin!

    Merry Christmas, folks, I want to report that the 13th Annual Santa's Flyin was a success! It was the first year Julie and I were able to host the event in our hangar (heated, to the delight of all who attended!). We were greatly helped by Brenda and Jim Crane, who made the trek from Florida to Minnesota on their way home to Maine! Jim was kind enough to serve as Santa's Air Boss for the event, successfully guiding the old guy in for about as good a landing as he has recently made!

    Here are some photos!

    An elevated photo of Santa's Elves. On the far left is Jake Hayes, on the far right is Jim Crane standing next to Julie and Brenda. Awesome Elves! Also of note is the young man standing behind me (6th from the left)...Max Brinkworth. Max was the 3 year old adopted grandson of my dear friend, Ron Barrows, for whom the first Santa Flyin was intended...he is now 15 years old!

    The flight into Lino Airpark was beautiful, Santa told me. The directions from Air Boss Jim were spot on, and Santa took a photo of our hangar with lots of people waving outside to help Santa identify which hangar he should fly to!

    Well, Santa is back at the North Pole (you lucky Alaskans!), putting together final details for his Christmas Eve flight. Many thanks to those who Believe, to those who keep the Santa tradition alive.

    On behalf of the Corfman family, we Wish You a Very Safe and Merry Christmas!
