Sun 'N Fun

Postby BladeDoc » Mon Apr 27, 2009 9:45 pm

I got back from Sun 'n Fun '09 on Saturday afternoon -- what a great time! Planes, planes flying around upside down, planes flying around upside down in formation and on Friday night planes flying around in the dark with fireworks shooting out of their wings :D

The best part though was getting to meet Jack Hodgson and Dave Higdon at the Sun 'n Fun radio station and the myTransponder meet (tweet)-up. A convivial time was had by all.

Anyone else there?

Hey ucapers,I also got to meet the guys at sun n fun,and jack introduced me to will hawkins,and jason smith.O yea also linnies!! I loved them and i have found them at my local walmart. I was able to introduce the guys to some of my friend ,from the aerobatic side! They also got rides. That made my day! I hope my wife and i can make oshkosh, and i can introduce DAVE, JACK, and JEB to more of my friends from the flight line.

Yes. Tony is the guy who will never pay for a beer if Jeb or I are in the room. He's the one who hooked us up with the Aeroshell Aerobatics Team and got us rides at Sun n Fun.

Thanks again Tony. See you in OSH for the next round.

Dang! I was actually in Mobile (working my butt off) this past week. That would have been a welcome diversion. Oh well, I'll probably be back there within the next 6 months anyway. I'm sure my boss is eyeballing mid August. bla!

I enjoyed meeting everyone at the myTransponder meetup, too. That was just a wonderful time. And thanks to Ace and ForeFlight for paying for dinner! I'm hoping to make it to Osh, but that is still up in the air...
