    Day 1, we catch the bus or a shuttle to the grocery store. That sets us up for one good meal that day, beer, sandwich fixings, soft drinks, snacks, etc. We fill in around that from Subway, SOS...

    Typical? I know Bede failed on some subsequent designs (the -10, -12, and -14) but I don't think customers took the hit on those.

    In the big picture, you can repaint the airplane, but if you pull control surfaces off (for instance), you'll need a mechanic to (legally) reinstall them, balance them (if necessary), etc.

    I wondered that myself. The Blackfly was there a year ago and had <supposedly> been flying out in California. A year later and they don't have it buzzing around the UL field? I can't understand why...

    I've always been surprised that the UL runway is so close to 18/36. Moving it a bit West is a good idea, IMO.

    The sad thing is that the UL area is dead today compared to what it was 20 years ago...

    The most dangerous part of Airventure is getting there. Driving or flying - both are dangerous. Second hand smoke in an outdoor setting? Negligible risk.
