The radial motors are cool but overall that was one ugly aircraft.

About 30 minutes. Great flight. I've got it in my log book for the right seat. Also a great photo opportunity!

May have some R/C aircraft on display as well as the Gwinnett Amateur Radio Club operating the Chapter 690 station - W4LZU.

Joel I am a bit confused:

On the AirVenture website, it states the Ford will be at Falcon Field (Peachtree City?).

EAA 690 is at Briscoe (Lawrenceville).

The big airshow tomorrow is at PDK.


Which airport is the TriMotor at??? I dont want to drive to the wrong one...

if you look at the dates the 24th-29th it will be at briscoe which is what joel is advertising for.


Going to think hard about doing this....if the damn state didnt want money for my ad velorem on the 30th it would be a no brainer

Even if you don'f get to fly in it, it's worth seeing and photographing. In addition we will haves some R/C planes on display and the Chapters radio station, W4LZU will be operating. Should be fun.
