Default Sun N Fun PIREPS?

Hey Michelle! And all you other lucky folks who were able to attend SNF
this year! How 'bout a PIREP or two?

Anything cool introduced at the show? I can't believe you got to see the
P-38 Lightning Glacier Girl flying...

Jay,
I did not attend this year. I canceled a couple weeks prior. My airplane
was not up and running until last week and to rent was prohibitively
expensive. I had an offer for a ride and time in a twin down but not
back. I am planning on getting to OSH for at least a couple of days.
Michelle :-(

Well, that's bad news/good news!

Be sure to be there for our Wednesday night pig roast -- or whatever
Montblack, JimC and I end up cooking at our campsite!

Face it Jay, it's a conspiracy to keep you from ever seeing a P-38 fly. :-)

Seriously, I hope you get a chance someday. It's an awesome plane to
see fly.

I got to see "Glacier Girl", the P-38 on the ground and in the air.
Pretty, pretty bird!

There was someone with a Steerman (225hp) that did an AWESOME
air show routine, square box and spin 'to the ground'... recovering
only 10' from the ground! Just when I thought I'd seen it all...
this was a refreshing new routine... Note... this was not a hopp-ed
up Steerman, but only 225hp!!!!

Jay, you need to plan an overnight trip to Middleboro KY for a couple
days this summer. You can see Glacier Girl up close at the museum/hangar
and some of us on this group could fly down and meet up with you. Then
we could all fly out somewhere for some great Eastern US ribs in the
Western NC/Eastern TN area.

I just did a search for "Middleboro, KY" in Destination Direct (my
flight planning software), and came up blank. Is there another
spelling?

It sounds like a great plan, otherwise.

Count me in, if the dates work out right I might be persuaded to make the
BBQue!

Kyler's "nearest airport" program shows that Elizabethtown (EKX) and Bardstown
(BRY) are the two closest fields.

There's plenty of room for all of God's creatures. Right next to the
mashed potatoes.

Middlesboro is the correct spelling.

As an aside, the geography near Middlesboro is unusual. One of the few
towns and/or airports you'll find that is completely encircled by mountains.
That's what happens at the center of an ancient meteor impact crater...

The museum is nice, and there are a couple of places within walking distance
where you can grab a burger.
