Country exploration (con’t)

South of Freeport lies Albertus Airport, which recently began hosting an annual airshow. Approaching from the south, I recognized the telltale signs of navigational aids and made a brief detour toward the runways. The pilot in the above photo was practicing touch-and-go maneuvers.

The surrounding countryside is indeed farm country.
