So, if fabulous taildraggers and old friends haven’t gotten you to AirVenture 2012 yet, maybe the incredible, hot, homemade donuts fried up every morning will. Trust me, I know a great cake donut when I have one and guarantee you won’t find one as mouth watering as these yummies anywhere else. Get there early or you may miss out!
I’ve been told by several people that the EAA have quite a few vendor booths unoccupied this year. The poor economy has taken its toll everywhere and general aviation is no exception.
We met some new people and caught up a little with members we’ve met before. Great to see so many happy faces!
I was the last to leave there today and had a great seat to watch some of the Warbirds line up for the afternoon airshow.
Lady taildragger pilots Melissa Abner and Vanessa Jump Nelson may be happy to be there but Rusty thinks he’s got the best seat in the house.
I didn’t know till this evening that our host, Dan, and Barty MoffettÂ ran the Sport Air Racing LeaguesÂ 2012Â AirVenture Cup race in his Venture Â last week and finished 1st place in the Sport FX Class; Â average speedÂ 264.73 mph. Congratulations to them both!
