    Well just got home alittle while ago from Airventure 2008, Im hoping to go back in a couple of days since this event is 7 days long. I took along an old digital camera I had laying around since scanning doesnt work very well. Not as good as Evengilders pictures but hope you enjoy them. Hopefully more to come.

    Thanks guys, sorry Wojtek, as of right now no Bf-109's have shown up. Actually in years past I have never seen one show up. Maybe Saturday on will. As of right now I plan on going back with my son and take a few more shots. Yesterday was a beautiful day and alot of aircraft owners where showing off there muscle and detail. I bet I counted 5 different mustangs that had all there inspection panels off to display there insides to the public, not including all the other aircraft that where doing the same thing. I took some pictures of an A-26 invader but they did not turn out so well so Im hoping its still there when I go back.

    Did you see the display with my pics? It should be the in northwest corner of the warbird area. I really wish I could be there this year, but I have already committed to a family reunion the rest of this week. :(

    Eric, I was going to email you about that tonight, I found there area, but none of your pictures. I even have a flyer from there booth. I was going to ask if you new exactly where they would have been posted since I am going back on Saturday. I was in the area just east of the mustang pin where all the aircraft for sale where. Im wondering if they have another booth some where?

    Next year is the year to go Eric, make plans now if you can or budget for it. As of right now they anounced that White Knight, space ship two is to show up and be on display.

    Hmmm, I wonder if they are going to be there later in the week. When I last exchanged e-mail with Cassie, she said she would be up there from thursday on, and she was the one who sent me the proof copies. They should be 2'x4' panels with aircraft profiles of the T-6, T-28 and PT-17. Thanks for checking, Paul.

    Thats the exact size that's currently on display but they all say photo provided by curtisy aircraft and not the ones you showed me. They are pretty beat up so maybe they are changing them today. I will look again Saturday.
