    How could they possibly prove they contracted Covid-19 while at AirVenture? How does anyone prove where they got it? Doors? Gas pumps? Handling canned goods in a grocery store? A DVD from Redbox?...

    I'm 70 and I have absolutely no fear of Covid-19. I started social distancing soon after they opened the first WalMart. If I wanted to "live safe" I'd never get in a car or on an airplane. If you...

    If y'all go back and re-read Skyranger's original post he does not make any claim that Waterman's aircraft was the first, just that the name came up during his research.

    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.
