    It is indeed a thing of beauty and a joy to behold. I was speaking with the pilot when it was at AirVenture in 2018 and suffice it to say the 4 little Hirth engines are not exactly 'over powering'...

    The Bally Bomber is back

    Saw on the EAA Facebook page that the new owner has flown it to AirVenture. There was a pic of it parked next to the Arch.

    I'm predicting non-stop tram 'paratroopers' of all ages at that turn. Also, due to the new increased length of Blue? I predict large numbers of 'unhappy' folks at tram stops watching nothing but full...

    You are correct, in 2019 they changed Red on Day 2 to make the 'big loop' on every run. This year I'm 'assuming' the powers-that-be felt that 11-3 was a dead time when very few riders would be...

    Trams don't operate after dark, the school buses take over our routes by 8:00pm each day. I don't 'know' if the bus bosses stage extra units to handle the massive number of people looking to avoid...

    The 5-10 day weather forecast 'should' be a pretty solid guide to buying earlier rather than taking a chance later on the rides being sold out. This year it looks like the B-25 will also be operating...
