    Dang!! Wish I could go. I did register for the Cirrus! :smile:

    Looking forward to your shots. If you get a chance and see Byron Root's Sherpa, please snap a shot of it. Its an 8 place turbine powered heavy hauler experimental that is so cool. However at 21.5gph its a bit hungry.

    Regards,

    First time in 5 years I won't be there for the whole week!

    you will see the big boeing coming in on Monday, get to the flight line early I think it arrives Monday.
     
  4. Haven't been since the mid-90s and don't miss it. The last time I got in a fight with a 14 year old CAP car-parker, and it was the last straw for me. I like the smaller fly-ins anyway :smile:

    If you see a new VulcanAir P68 (aka Partenavia), take a look. I'll be getting a brand spankin' new one here in a few months, all set with a big gaping hole in the floor, a camera port in the side, and a full blown HF antenna (I hope) for the ham gear. Can't wait!

    Enjoy!

    Sweet!!!!

    So, you going to put a Leica Digital Mapping Camera or some other lidar camera system in the bad boy?

    Cool plane! There are a couple of those in my area used for mapping.
     
  6. Neither - I shoot film, but we're looking at a Zeiss digital system in the future. From what I've heard digital is a royal pain in the butt compared to what we're used to.
     
  7. Hey Bill,
    I'll be there next Saturday, PLEASE be there by 9:30am on tues. They're debutting that new "RocketPack". I'd Love to see that thing fly!!!!!
