Mystic Bluffs 6th Annual Fly-In

Saturday August 18, 2018

Welcome aviators near and far. You are invited to join the NMPA for their 6th annual fly-in at Mystic Bluff, NM56.  Come and see why this event is referred to as the “crown jewel of back country fly-ins”.  You’re sure to be dazzled by the towering bluffs and dramatic setting of this unusual fly-in.  Check out the many diversified aircraft, partake in the fabulous buffet breakfast and frendly atmosphere.  If your spending the night there will be a blazing campfire to relax around while you catch up with old and new buddies.  If the moon is full expect to hear some hair raising hangar stories.
