Since 1978 we have never missed sending out the newsletter on the first of the month. Super Sandy almost broke this tradition, however through various means and much help, the tradition continues, although it is incomplete.
Considering the scope of Hurricane Sandy, the airport fared pretty well. Management and the staff worked endlessly to assure as little damage as possible, and they succeeded. Locals clocked winds at 82 mph at 39N. There was some damage and no power, but we’re back and strong. We hope your inconvenience was minimal.
We are having some technical difficulties with the newsletter and the website. Be patient – it too shall pass.
Just a short time ago, the weather was great and the Cannibeat Car Show was a huge success with thousands coming from all over the world to view these unique vehicles. The White Elephant Sale also was a success with the new hospital being the beneficiary. Now get ready for the holiday season.
Hurricane Sandy! Where did all the airplanes go?!?
Into the Maintenance Hangar and any indoor space available.
ANNUAL SANTA FLYIN Help & Contribute!
One of the best events at 39N is the Santa Fly-In. This will be the 37th year that we have sponsored this happening. (At 47N prior to Princeton.) On Monday, December 24th at 11:00 a.m. Santa will fly into the airport with gifts for area children. To participate you must bring a wrapped gift for you child or children with the name in large print. (Gift not to exceed 12″. If you have more than one gift, tie them together so Santa gives them out together.)
You must also bring an equal number of unwrapped gifts for NEEDY children. In the lobby there will be two chimneys to receive the respective gifts. Get your gifts in early, as Santa dispenses them in the order we receive them. (Collection starts Nov. 23rd.) For more information
