    I belong to EAA Chapter 75 and fly an Airbike. Illinois only allows 6 alpha characters on their personalized plates, hence no "E" on Airbike.

    And has anyone mentioned "Flyboys"? That's a favorite of mine.

    What???? No mention of Baa Baa Blacksheep? Sky King? Poncho Barnes? Midway? Tora Tora Tora? Pearl Harbor? Flat Top? Spitfire?
    I lost my recording of Tailspin (1939). Anyone got a copy?

    Moving the flightline back somewhat or adding more bleachers won't solve the problem. The main problem is the topography. It drops away.
    More bleachers will benefit those lucky few who grab a seat....

    In order to have more EAB aircraft you first need more EAB pilots. I have a suspicion that a lot of Baby Boomer would-be pilots elected to buy a Harley instead. The cost of owning a Harley is a...

    I can do without the evening airshows. It's all a little too much anyway. Back in the day you had to be directly associated with aviation in some way to access the flightline. You felt some assurance...
