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. The tail-dragger is a vintage aluminum aircraft, a two-seater. The two geese are Apollo and Kennedy. And, the Lincoln Town car, well, that belongs to Marvin and Mary Jo and it is used as a prompt to encourage Apollo and Kennedy to come play "goose games."
