Will Rogers and Wiley Post Fly-In
On Saturday, August 10, starting at 8:30 a.m., aviation enthusiasts will mark 84 years since Will Rogers and Wiley Post died in an Alaska plane crash. To honor their memory, pilots of small planes will land on a 2,000-foot grass strip at the Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch, adjacent to the house where Rogers was born in 1879.
The fly-in is an opportunity for the public to get an up-close look at vintage and late-model small aircraft and visit with the pilots. Pilots come from a four-state area to showcase their planes and renew friendships from previous years. Come early to see the first aircraft land.
There will also be special activities for children, storytelling, a car and motorcycle show, food trucks, and tours of the birthplace and the Amish-built barn. Admission is free, and ample parking is available on the grounds. The Will Rogers Birthplace Ranch is located at 9501 E 380 Road in Oologah.
