    Did you take the pics, Steve? There are a lot of great photos in there, but I love that one of Saturday morning's fog, with the DC-3's nose and the tents popping out of it.

    I get Lee Bottom's newsletter; that event looks like one that has to be on the Bucket List. WOW, what a great mix of airplanes, helicopters, and people.

    No, those links are from the newsletter.

    I brought my camera but I was parking planes all day and didn't take time to do any rubbernecking as I had originally intended.

    Not sure if it's just me, but I can't get the Sunday pics to go past the yellow cub on the runway.

    There was one plane with a mid/highwing Cub yellow odd looking cockpit with a goose painted on the cowl what was that. Not the Gruman.

    It's a homebuilt; Cygnet SF-2A. The wing construction is a geodesic/lattice construction--lots of parts, but very strong. Complicated to build the wings.
