North Fork Valley Airport Hosts Fly-In Breakfast

Herb Anderson with the experimental plane he built himself
Jim Brett

Herb Anderson parks his plane on the tarmac at the North Fork Valley Airport in Paonia. He’s one of a handful of pilots and aviation fans out for a Saturday-morning “fly-in, drive-in” breakfast. Like some of the others here today, his plane is “experimental,” which basically just means he built it himself. 

Born and raised just west of Olathe, Herb started flying when he was a sophomore at Olathe High School, or as he tells it, when he wasn't there: he used to play hookie to take flying lessons.
