When I first went to the Airshow it was at Haines Junction I'm not sure when it moved to Anchorage. Anyone know?

Here is a link to an article about it click on

I believe most everyone else had to walk or take a shuttle from Palmer airport if they flew in.

But the picture shows the 'Helio Alaska' airplane setting on the fairgrounds in front of  the covered Farm exhibition building.

Is there a story here?

A group of us flew to the 'State Fair' one year in ultralights and landed in a field across the highway from the fair grounds. We really considered landing in the South end of the parking area but decided our a/c would be safer in the field across from the fairgrounds. plus if I remember correctly we didn't have to walk as far.
