Double surprise for Dale Speckner on 90th birthday: Marshalltown Municipal Airport (KMIW)

Dale Speckner, Toledo, enjoyed a "double" surprise birthday party honoring him on his 90th birthday (Oct. 25) which was celebrated on Sunday, Oct. 22. Not only was the party at Otter Creek Lake and Park northeast of Toledo in itself a surprise, but a "wish came true" as Dale also was able to take a flight with his grandson, Adam Williams as the pilot at the controls.

Granddad and grandson took off from Marshalltown Municipal Airport toured by air daughter Marla Behounek's farm southeast of Tama, the Shellsburg area where he lived for quite some time and the party site- Otter Creek Lake and Park.

Dale had taken commercial flights but this was the first time up in a small plane.

Friends and family were all on hand for the event which Dale appreciated very much.

His birthday pilot, Adam, is the son of his daughter Terri and Dale Williams. Dale's other children are Lonnie (Rhonda) Speckner and Marla Behounek.
