Chicken Drop is a Hoot to Watch!
Get set for a lot of formation flying during Easton Airport Day 2017. First a big formation flyover to begin the flying demonstrations, followed by the Nineth Annual Chicken Drop.
Planes will roar down the runway and toss out a rubber chicken in an attempt to hit the back of a pick up truck with their chicken. Pilots are in rare form and been known to cheat with their chicken bombs, so come see some fancy flying all in good fun!
Many different types of airplanes will be flying in the Chicken Drop including: Yaks, RVs, T-6s and who knows what else!
All local sponsoring businesses will have chickens named and dropped for them during the competition. No one has ever been able to get a chicken in the back of the truck. . . yet — but this could be the year that happens. Whoever lands closest to the truck wins! One local business will be claimed the “CHAMP” and receive the official Easton Airport Day trophy!
