At Brown's airport near Hancock, Minn. the log book of landings and takeoffs might read something like this: one tail-dragger -- regular landings and takeoffs; two geese -- touch and goes; one Lincoln Town car -- taxing only. Actually, Brown's airport is a half-mile long grass airstrip on a farm owned by Marvin and Mary Jo Brown, and it is where they host a number of fly-ins through the year.
