    Day 8 of 9 is done......sigh

    It's always a little sad for me when I'm down to just one more day. I do luv me some entertaining, airplanes and AirVentures. And tram conducting allows me to feed those passions to the max.

    Were it not for my Chicago-rented mobility scooter, I would pretty much only be seeing AirVenture from the seat of a tram. The "irony" of the on-site mobility scooter service at AirVenture is that...

    Day 4 of 9 is in the history books

    The crowds were very big today once the early rain storm passed by 9:30-ish. Then it was again delightfully severe clear, hot and humid but beautiful clear skies.

    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...
