Around the Field, Sunday column

Here's the first of my daily columns which are appearing in AirVenture Today, the EAA show daily newspaper.

It’s still pretty quiet, Friday afternoon, in the first half-dozen rows of the North 40 airplane camping area. The first few rows are filled in, and the choice spots on the next few rows, closest to Runway 9/27, are taken.

The trickle of incoming airplanes, landing on Runway 9, is punctuated by a Learjet arrival and the takeoff of the bright red Oracle biplane.

A comfortable breeze has cooled things off today, and these early arrivers are sitting by their planes, renewing acquaintances, and watching the runway.
