    I will be there for most if not all of the event. I am trying to set up a party for one evening, probably during the night show. I'll keep people posted.

    Trying to get permission to bring the Pilatus down.

    Otherwise, it's the Saratoga.

    I might visit for a day. I'm only 49nm away but I've always wanted to experience the flying in part. Or I might drive.

    If there's going to be a meet up it could influence which day...

    This will be my 4th year going but I only flew in once, the last two times I went up in a bus with the A&P school tour. I'm hoping to fly in and spend at least a few days there but I might drive if that's my only option for spending three or four days.

    I'm only an hour and a half away by car, but I always fly in anyone. The experience of flying in there is worth it regardless of how close you are, really makes you feel like part of the show.

    I'll be there! First time, with a friend. Arrive Wednesday and leave on Sunday most likely.

    Looking forward to it, and comparing it with Oshkosh.

    Edit - flying in, in a Saratoga. Camping.

    My current plans are to fly down Thursday morning and camp by my plane in Vintage Camping area. Will probably fly out Saturday evening or Sunday morning depending on weather.

    Well, the plane's good, I got my medical (kind of), and have the time off. Weather defendant, we'll be there! Probably going to do a hotel for this, unless people tell us that Camp Radioactive is where it's at!

    Karen and I will be arriving Friday mid-day, and camping with our travel trailer.

    Doing the show all day Saturday, then on to a FL east coast winery Sunday.

    Would not mind hooking up some time Saturday, if anyone is so inclined.

    We overhauled my nose strut today and hopefully that issue will be a thing of the past. My plans are to leave out in the morning, shooting for a lunch time arrival at KLAL. If the weather here has not cleared out in time to arrive before the air show, I will time it to arrive between 6:00 and 7:00 pm.
