QUINCY -- Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 488 based in Quincy has canceled its annual Father's Day Pancake and Sausage Breakfast scheduled for Sunday.

Chapter President Andy Skattebo said that because of multiple unforeseen circumstances, the breakfast had to be called off for the first time in 40 years. The chapter hopes to bring the tradition back next year.

The local chapter is part of the Experimental Aircraft Association based in Oshkosh, Wis., site of the EAA's annual aviation gathering. EAA promotes general aviation worldwide and sponsors aviation academies for youth. Through its Young Eagles Program, individual members give free airplane rides to kids from age eight to 17.
