The big story is that it's realllly realllly windy. Otherwise, sunny and cool.
Steady 20kt winds with gusts over 30. No ultralight ops. The wind is pretty much right down the runway at Linder so arrivals are easy... still, no picnic for biplanes taxiing crosswind.
The New Standard is giving rides with comically short takeoff rolls and landing rollouts. It climbs like an elevator in this wind.
We are delighted to meet lots of our friends, old and new, and to meet new builders face-to-face for the first time.
Wednesday night, Tom Reilly, our longtime friend and renowned warbird builder had a presentation in the EAA amphitheater. Lots of interesting stuff about the latest projects. The new B17 is really coming along.
WERE HAVING A PARTY !!!
Join us for the Friday Evening BIPLANE COOKOUT
Starting at 6PM Friday Evening
All Are Welcome!!!
We invite Biplane Aficionados of every persuasion to join us for a good time of swapping stories, making friends, and talking about biplanes. These parties have been a lot of fun in the past.
Paul is putting up the burgers, hot dogs, and liquid fuels - just show up as you are and be ready to have some fun!
LOCATION: The cookout will be held at the Steen Aero Lab campsite. We are in four campers in a box structure at the intersection of Laird Blvd and Rocky Rd, right next to the "Tram Pickup Triangle" by where the Fly Mart USED TO BE. Laird is the road between the rear of the display hangars and the "floatplane pond" in the SW corner of the display area. Walk down Laird a hundred yards past the pond towards the campsites, and you're there. We will have a sign up. The campers are right at the start of the bend in Rocky Rd.
We hope to see you there !!
