Wow, Wow, Wow – today was a fantastic day at Sun ‘n Fun. Granted, your idea of fun has to be lots of lady taildragger pilots, lots of fantastic taildraggers and warm sunshine! Â I won’t bog you down with details, just a few, since it’s late and tomorrow’s Sun ‘n Fun is just hours away. The pictures tell the story way better than me anyway.
The Lady Taildragger pilots gather today at Sun’N Fun!
Our favorite men folks joined us too!
Lynn O’Donnell – minus her Stinson 108.
I had an invitation to visit the QB’s today as they welcomed the WASP’s. Their building at Sun ‘n Fun is just west of the 99’s. I’m guessing they like their Bud.
I was forewarned to expect the worst but actually witnessed nothing to be distressed about. Maybe they were on their best behavior but womanizing wasn’t part of today’s program.
The most popular Quiet Birdman spot in the building. Have tokens – get beer!
The WASP were invited by the QB for drinks and they graciously attended. They were treated respectfully with a few gentlemen stopping by to say a few words.
I do think the QB could have done more than just find them a table and hand them a drink though. No pomp and circumstance here.
On the other hand, the 99â€™s hosted the WASP just before the QBs, right next door. The 99â€™s get it. They did it right featuring the WASPs signing Life Magazine cover shots, signing book autographs and offering them the extreme respect they deserve for their service to this country.
The Women in Aviation hosted a luncheon with a fantastic panel of women involved in aviation. I’m not a member but it was not a requirement to attend. EXCELLENT program!
And I got a huge kick out of wondering by this purple C180 surrounded by purple and pink necessities. Name on the left door “Michelle”. Michelle, we need you as a member!
Great to see Smokey!
A totally cool day day at Sun ‘n Fun. Hope to see you there tomorrow!
