The 18th annual Backus Fly-In Pancake Breakfast will be held Sunday, July 28 from 7:30 a.m. to noon at the Backus Airport just west of Highway 371.
Schedule permitting, the North Memorial Medivac helicopter will land at 11 a.m. A demonstration will be given with the “jaws of life” rescue apparatus on an old car. The Lions Club will also provide free diabetes screenings.
You can watch airplanes land and take off, talk to pilots, firemen and first responders and see a fire engine up close. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event.
The pancake breakfast, a benefit for the Backus Fire Department and First Responders, will cost $6 at the door or $5 in advance and $3 for children under 12. Fly-in pilots eat free. Sausage, juice, coffee and milk will also be available.
Advance tickets are available from Backus Lions members, Godfrey’s on Saturdays, or Backus Fire Department members and First Responders.
