Spot Landing Contest Raises Money For Vets

WAUSAU, WIS. – John Chmiel of Wausau Flying Service and Wausau Downtown Airport (KAWU), Wausau, Wis., has announced the winner of their “Spot Landing Contest In Honor of Veterans.” Local pilot, Bob Mohr – a three-time winner of the event – was declared the winner once again.

There were a total of 70 landing attempts during the nine-day contest; 31 different pilots made landing attempts; and the evening of the airport’s “hamburger night social” was a big success and accounted for 24 attempts, which is the most ever in one day.
