Blogging AirVenture: Day 6

Oddly quiet today.

It's not as hot as yesterday, which is strange since the forcast was for it to be hotter. A couple lines of t-storms drifted through earlier this morning. None hit us, but I could have taken more of those scary cloud pics.

We're working on the final paper for the week here at AirVenture Today. Bitter-sweet. We're glad to be done, but a little sad that the week is ending. It's a great team, we all enjoy each other's company.

I did some regular-old-wandering-like-a-real-attendee stuff this afternoon. Saw some interesting planes.

Diamond has come a long way from the original Katana that we drooled about so back at the West ValleyFlying Club. They have a whole line of planes now. And the intro'd a light jet. The D-Jet.

Maybe I need to learn something about jet engines. They seem to be the way of the future.

Today is the biggest airshow of the week. Yesterday's was big too. I was over at the Super8 at the end when they set off all the Pyro. It even shook the windows way over there too.

Tonight's the big AV Today staff dinner. Always fun.
