The annual "Wood, Fabric and Tailwheels Fly-In" is certainly one of the finest "down home" aviation events you'll find anywhere. Rich and Ginger Davidson and the team that works with them are in love with aviation, and Lee Bottom Flying Field, with its 4100' grass runway running parallel to the Ohio River, is a fantastic location.

A field adjacent to the airport is available for RV's (no hookups) in addition to general parking. The food service is very good and the event is extremely well-done in general with improvements each year. One word of caution is that there can be a lot of traffic. Here's a shot of final on Sept. 29, 2007 - - and then you had downwind and base too, and of course some are not radio equipped.

They sustained substantial damage from a March 2, 2012 tornado and I'm not sure what the plans are for 2013. There will most certainly be updates on their website - - click on "Newletters."

This is a three-day event and my wife Elaine and I have been there several times. At this point I only have the following photos posted.
