Are you just going Fri/Sat to Indy?

Keep me updated on EVV and what you're doing. Chris (VNAF One) is coming down as well. I might throw you both in the backseat and we'll go buzz around for a bit.

I don't know what what day I would go IF I go. Remember I said "IDEALY". Also I heard that the F-22 Raptor will be there!

If I did end up in UK at all this year I'd have to meet quite a few of you all especially since a lot of people on this forum are big RIAT fans. However as circumstances are now, it is really a wish more than a reality. At the time it's not clear that that's the way I'll be heading at all but I just don't know.

Well I've swapped days with a coworker for Canada day, so I should get the time to see the snowbirds and maybe a hornet, but yeah, airshows (or any demo flights really) aren't really easy to come by around here.

I wanted to see an Independence Day Airshow. At least one of every plane we have does a fly-past and then a steep climb along with a grand finale by the Sherdils. All we got was some Remote Control Extra 300's and an RC Helicopter with the PK Flag on it.
