Hey fellas. "Heads Up" notice for those attending tomorrow.
Wunderground shows 70-80% chance of rain tomorrow up to 1". PLEASE use caution when parking. Last year, the parking lot was a mud swamp and caught many off guard. If you are in a small vehicle, consider parking along the side of the road that leads to the pits. If you are not sure where to park safely, please ask for assistance.
If the rains come, the pits will get a bit soggy. Consider appropriate shoe/boot attire when coming out.
On the plus side, the weather forecast improves Friday and Saturday. Hopefully you can make it out one of those days. This is a great event with hundreds of gorgeous aircraft.
Here is the video I made for the event last year. Please check out my YouTube channel for other unedited videos from the event.
Cheers, -Lee Ray
