The 2013 Zangger Fly-In began with a pancake breakfast from 7:00-11:00 a.m. The flying anvil demonstration was scheduled for 11:00 a.m. and we had a celebration of life in honor of Russell Zangger at 2:00 p.m.
Dad's wish was not to have a funeral marking his death but rather chose to have his life remembered by his friends during our fly-in. There was a short message given by his friend Don Klaussen, who was the M2 program director and prison Chaplin at the South Dakota State Penitentiary during the time Dad participated in this program sponsoring an inmate. We provided an opportunity for his former students and friends to reminisce and tell their stories about their associations with Dad and the experiences they shared while learning to fly! Thank you to all who shared! View Russel Zangger's Obituary here.
Since the passing of Russ and Dolly we have discontinued the annual fly-in but hope the future will see the return of this activity.
