    I always thought AirVenture was a dumb name anyhow. The EAA was already using "Air Adventure" for the museum. It took the PA announcers almost four years to stop insert "Ad" or another extra...

    Yeah, I guess having the EAA evict you from your own land and illegal tortuous interference with their business over the years probably wears a little thin on them. The SOS's are just a bit more...
