What started on a cool Sunday in May of 1972, The
Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 15 has held it's
annual pancake breakfast every year, with this year making it
the 47th... and counting. It started out as a way for family and
friends who have one thing in common, airplanes, to hang out and
share stories. Over the years,
the event grew. Folks from all over the Chicagoland area come
by car and by air to enjoy our breakfast, walk the flight line,
and talk airplanes. When good weather prevailed in the past,
it was common to have over thirty aircraft fly in including a
heavy contingency of RV's.
By popular demand, 2018's pancake breakfast has been expanded to a full day event. Once the cakes stop flipping around 11:00am, the hot dogs, hamburgers and pulled pork hit the grill until 3:30pm. All while you're enjoying the sights and sounds of ex-military planes and antique/classic cars, all part of the Wings over Wheels experience.
The menu is simple:
Other sample concessions: Cotton Candy, Sno-Cones, Popcorn and Ice Cream.
