The Aviation Migration
September 24, 2015 - Nestled between a rolling, tree-covered hillside and the mighty Ohio River, Lee Bottom Flying Field is 4,100 feet of grass-roots aviation heaven. The private, public-use airport is located near Hanover, Indiana, but you fly the downwind for 18 in Kentucky, or nearly so. Owned by Rich and Ginger Davidson, the strip is home to an annual fly-in now called the Aviation Migration. The fly-in is probably best summed up by one of the top items listed on the schedule on their website: Relax and enjoy the day. It’s open to aircraft of all types, and, over the years, has seen everything from brand new LSAs to a lumbering DC-3. We made our first visit this past weekend and came back with two things: First, a desire to go again next year, and second, a bunch of photos. Here are 30 of our favorites.
