ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The 29th Annual Land of Enchantment Fly-In is happening Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Double Eagle II Airport.


Admission and parking is free for families that want to check out the aircraft.

There will be static displays but some pilots will fly their planes.

The Chile Flight crew will fly in formation during the national anthem. They’re made up of seven pilots who own “home-built” planes.

Since 2012, they have flown over 400 times, according to a teammate, John “Viking” Nystrom.

Every Saturday morning, the crew meets up at the Double Eagle II Airport to fly.

"We fly formation, and there's a national organization that sets rules and specifications, and we all adhere to that,” said another crew member, Steve “Boo” Booher.

The Chile Flight doesn’t actively recruit members, but they welcome anyone who is interested in joining.
