Come watch more than 100 small aircraft fly-in and land on the 2,000-ft grass airstrip on the Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch, located just east of Oologah and bordering Oologah Lake. This event celebrates Will Rogers and Wiley Post's many contributions to aviation. Bring your own lawn chairs, talk to the pilots and see their planes up close. Other attractions include children's activities like a petting zoo and giant inflatables, a Cherokee storyteller, a classic car show, food vendors and free tours of the Will Rogers Birthplace home and Amish barn.

PHOTOG had a great time at this event last year. It is an excellent occasion to see some beautiful vintage and experimental aircraft up close and personal. Opportunities abound for Photogs of all abilities to shoot very close to the grass air strip and catch the take offs and landings for images you will be proud of.

The event officially begins at 08:30 but the planes start coming in much earlier. We will meet @ 7:00 at the entrance by the south end of the runway before you get to the entrance tables to talk about safety around the runway and have some shooting tips for spectacular images. After that, feel free to enjoy all that the fly in offers, you will not be disappointed. Admission to the Will Rogers & Wiley Post Fly-In is free and it wraps up by 1:00.

WE WILL BE VERY CLOSE TO AN ACTIVE RUNWAY SO SITUATIONAL AWARENESS IS CRITICAL AT ALL TIMES.
