Piper Cubs touch down in Lompoc for fly-in: Lompoc Airport (KLPC), California

Groups of historic Piper Cub airplanes touched down at the Lompoc Airport throughout the day Friday in preparation for this weekend's 30th annual West Coast Cub Fly-In.

The event, which is the longest consecutively running Piper Cub fly-in in the country, will last through Sunday. More than 100 pilots of the popular light airplanes, which were manufactured between 1937 and 1947, will participate in various activities today and Sunday in what is expected to be the highest-attended fly-in in the event's 30-year history.

The most popular events will take place today, with the start of the flour bombing and spot landing contests at 1:30 p.m., and the mass scenic flight at 4 p.m.

All of the activities related to the fly-in are free to members of the public, who will have the opportunity to walk around and check out the aircraft and mingle with the pilots.
