Around the Field, Monday

Here's Monday's Around the Field column:

North 40 filling up…it’s a family thing…the well-qualified formation pilot…and, not your typical father-son flying story.

It’s Sunday, and a steady stream of planes are arriving in the North 40, filling up row after row. Lots of different colors, sizes, and shapes.

The EAA flag people wave their orange wands, directing newcomers to the next open space. Fuel trucks bounce up and down the rows, topping off tanks.

Tents, sleeping bags, and all kinds of gear are being pulled out of loaded-to-the-limits small airplanes.

AirVenture 2006 is under way.
