Day 3 is well underway here at EAA Airventure and we hope to see all of you at Booth A-1050!
With the booth display well established and six orders on the scoreboard so far we had a little more free time to wander the show & see the sights today.
I took advantage of the opportunity to make my first visit of the show to AirVenture Central, the large ramp / gathering area that serves as the focal point for the festivities. My stroll was rewarded with the opportunity to get up close and personal with a number of very rare and exotic aircraft.
Where else in the world can you see a B-17 Flying Fortress, a B-24 Liberator, an authentic Mitsubishi A6M Zero (all of the above from WWII), plus a DeHavilland Fairey Gannett
and a V22 Osprey Tiltrotor – and those are just the aircraft that I could identify on sight! Quite a few other examples were so rare or obscure that I will have to try and identify them via Google!
After a stint of booth duty to meet & greet current and future Customers, an afternoon stroll to the “Classics” section of the field yielded numerous examples of fully restored, flying works of art from aviations Golden Age. From a very rare Spartan Executive (every square inch hand polished to yield a blinding shine) to a one-of –a-kind 1929 Fairchild
– a six passenger airliner of that era with folding wings!
To top off the day, I stuck around for one of my personal favorite activities – the night airshow: a series of precision formation and solo aerobatic demonstration accompanied by awesome pyrotechnics attached to and launched from the wings of the performers.
It all made for a very long but very satisfying day!
Below are some pictures of our banner on the Mooney Caravan tent.
We are now at 6 sales for the entire show. This means everyone saves at least $100 who orders their PFS system during EAA AirVenture 2014. Tell your friends; the more everyone buys, the more everyone saves.
Keep checking back throughout the day for more updates; we will be posting the status of our EAA/Airventure Only, Show Special Group Buying Opportunity at the end of the day.
