Fly In for Lunch
Anyone lucky enough to be eating lunch at the Pik N Pig in Carthage on Friday was treated to something in addition to pulled barbeque and homemade desserts. Members of the Carolinas-Virginia Antique Airplane Foundation dropped in for lunch, too, arriving from the blue in an array of beautiful, vintage airplanes. Members of the club were heading to a regional fly-in event in Roxboro on Saturday, and about 20 pilots decided to stop by the Gilliam-McConnell Airfield in Carthage for lunch in the unique restaurant, located next to the runway. According to the club's president, Susan Dusenbury, of Walnut Cove, most of the planes were 1940s vintage.
