Why go just once? I just got back from my fifth AirVenture 4 hours ago. I stayed seven days this time. I can't wait for '12!!

FiFi has an awesome sound when she takes off. I had a shop at the end of the runway at Addison Airport many years ago when that plane was there for some reason.

Apart from the rain on Wednesday (?) and the wind on Saturday it was just perfect, a great break from Missouri weather for sure.
