At 90, Anna Monkiewicz has a lifetime of stories and memories.
The ones about flying start here.
"My father had driven us over to see the planes take off and land" in Framingham, which, by the mid-1930s had two airfields: one at the Musterfield, used primarily for military planes, one for charter planes and flying lessons on Western Avenue near the Sherborn line. When she was a girl, there was also a small airfield in Natick, off Rte. 9, near the Wellesley line, the former Anna Flynn recalled.
