End summer vacation with aircraft and pancakes at Dawn Patrol Fly-in
News from MLive.com:

GRAND HAVEN, MI — Pancakes, helicopters and classic cars are an odd combination, at best, but the three go hand-in-hand at the annual Dawn Patrol Fly-in.

The aviation spectacle begins at 7 a.m. on Aug. 29 at the Grand Haven Memorial Airpark, 16446 Comstock St. Admission to airport grounds is free. Prices on food and other activities vary.

Sponsored by the Grand Haven Aviation Association, the event will display vintage aircraft and offer rides in a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter, a bi-plane and other high-flying vehicles. Rides will be offered at an additional cost.

Aviation exhibits, flight demonstrations and music from the Prevailing Winds Concert Band are also planned. The event will feature a small collection of classic and vintage cars in addition to the aircraft. 

Visitors attending early can get their fill of the Fly-in’s popular pancake breakfast, complete with eggs, sausage, coffee and juice. Breakfast costs $ 6 and runs until 11 a.m.

Hungry visitors attending later can buy hot dogs on site from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For more information, visit and “like” the Grand Haven Aviation Association on Facebook or call 616-842-4430.

Or rather, eye to lens. A
