    I don't know for sure, but I have been watching their message board and it looks like it is going to be really big. I wish I could make it out there for that.

    Thanks Amsel. I am curious to see how it looks, but I don't see myself getting down there to check it out, unfortunately.

    Luv them buses Eric.
    I would love to have a buzz in either a Trojan or a Harvard there is a military show in a months time not far from me and last year a guy was doing flights in a Stearman so I may splash out and get me a ride this year as I have never flown in a radial powered plane .

    All three of them are fun to ride along in. The Trojan is fast and beefy. For a warbird, the cockpit is big and roomy. Harvard/Texans are a blast too, very responsive and nimble. Stearmans are just fun. There is nothing quite like flying along in an open cockpit, wearing the leather helmet and feeling like you've gone back in time. Go for the Stearman ride, they are a blast and you'll never forget it.

    Don't count me out yet Eric, I have a couple of friends trying to get me free tickets. If I get them i will be there. Fingers crossed!!! But then again my camera is nothing compared to yours.
