The Flo's Run is back on the 356 Club of Southern California Website: www.356club.org/events!

The 356 Club updated its website several years back and the previous update didn't have a way to show recurring events. A brand new website launched a few days ago and the Sunday Run to Flo's is back!

Shortly after buying this 1926 Travel Air 2000 the owner, Keith Kossuth shipped it to Crete for the Vintage Air Rally. He and the rest of the rally flew from Crete to South Africa. A few planes didn't make it home but no human fatalities.
