Spruce Creek Wings-n-Wheels 2009

SPRUCE CREEK, FL - The 2009 Annual Spruce Creek Wings and Wheels event was an astounding success thanks to the efforts of the many volunteers and the leadership of Capt. Mike Kelly and his wife, Diane.

A vast collection of warbirds, antique and contemporary aircraft as well as diverse vehicles and motorcycles were on display and enjoyed by all attendees.

Kids of all ages were entertained by aerial skill displays by The Mavericks air show team as well as the Spruce Creek Gaggle. The always favorite spot landing contest was even more challenging this year thanks to the high winds brought by a weather front that moved in later in the day.

A formation of two Mustang P-51's based at Spruce Creek stole the show. The WWII ace fighters are in better than new condition thanks to the loving care of their owners, both long time residents at this world-famous fly-in community.

Children activities included a jumping house as well as diverse crafts. Food and drinks and business displays complemented another great day at Spruce Creek.

Pictures speak better than words, so here is the gallery of pictures taken by The Spruce Creek Journal reporter covering the event.
