Yes I flew in, the saturday before the show started. Parked at Basler. I worked flite line OPS Monday and Wednesday. Worked the planes coming out of the North 40 wednesday morning during the rain. But it got me in free for 3 days. Brought home lots of free "Useless" stuff. I did spend a little bit of $$ though!!!!
My son is now in comunications in the US Army at MacDill AFB he will be deployed mid Aug.
He has been flying prior to his birth.. Mom is a pilot also. He is an CFI, CFI A & I, .. has his SES and Glider ratings. We used to go to airshow almost every weekend during the season. Now I work in production and broadcat.. with an aviation spin.. The Managing Safety Radio show on HangarChat is one on my show that I produce. *** OBIE ***
Wow-- that's awesome! Does your son ever/still fly airshows? I'm working on my taildragger endorsement right now. I just got back from Oshkosh. What a blast!! It was really nice to see more young people there this year.
My Son is 31... Born about the time of Star Wars.. So I became Obie I and he got dubbed with Obie II. Yes we both fly. I produced airshows for 20 years and flew in them for about 6. Then I went to the "dark side" - FAA. But now I am retired fighting for the airman again.
