Celebrating 60 years of Private Aviation at Catalina's Airport In the Sky


DC-3 Gifts & Grill in partnership with the Catalina Island Conservancy celebrated 60 years of private aviation at the Airport in the Sky (1959-2019) with a special "Fly-In" on Saturday May 25.  The original "Sky Burger" served in 1959 was a beef patty on pumpernickel bread with grilled onions and white cheddar cheese.  Complimentary baked beans and cole slaw were the side dishes on this special day, replicating what was originally served at the Airport Cafe.  A great number of Aero Club pilots (some in their vintage planes) and visitors spent the day at the Airport enjoying freshly prepared burgers on the outdoor grill, door prizes and live music.
