    Last year the app was unusable because it wouldn't even come up when there was no internet data (and there was none for a bulk of the busiest days). This year the dead times were much better...

    The NOTAM acronym is now officially NOTICE TO AIR MISSIONS. It's politically correct to call it NOTAM still.

    Vendors should be using the expo company (at least during prime hours) rather than driving into the exhibit areas.

    Here's the post-show ugly. I got a message from the EAA asking my opinion, but goes to a 404 page on surveymonkey when clicked.

    It's always been a mess. It has gotten better. In previous years it's been near unusable during the actual show. This year, it only really crapped out completley (at least ATT and Verizon) on...

    The new signage was a big improvement. I still think they should list all the stops (similar to most mass transit systems) ahead rather than just the next one. The Scholler gate turnaround is...

    The weather (other than that firset blow) was pretty good this year. Mostly around 80 during the day and cooler at night.
    The show seemed pretty good.

    Yep, member services (800) 564-6322 is helpful, but this should still not have happened. The failure of the EAA to handle this is a violation of their consent decree from a federal lawsuit. ...

    A few years ago right at sunset, they launched a bunch of powered parachutes as some "fun flight" demo.
    I picked up the radio and announced the "cirrus mass arrival."

    I've never been a fan of the band. It's not much of an interest to me at an airshow. It was an attempt to draw some of the local non-aviation crowd in early in the week.
