    Default 2014 Warhawk Air Show

    Before anything else, let me applaud the pilots. I think I mentioned the CEO's father, a WWII vet, hasn't been in the greatest health. He was really down because he just wasn't going to be able to attend the show (this was the last weekend in August). I figured, well, in addition to getting pictures to him, maybe I can get a poster signed or something. Turns out the museum didn't do posters this year, but Sue did have a spare newsletter. Since I'd taken a couple of days off from work to shoot some of the prep before the show I was sure I'd be able to get at least a few signatures.

    Some of these folks are Big Names in the aviation community (Steve Hinton just got a lifetime achievement award). Several are very wealthy. Every single one of them said "I'd be honored" as they reached for an ink pen. After the show I told Mike to pick out a bunch of photos that a plane nut would especially like, worked those first and burned them to a DVD.

    Phyl reported that she took the newsletter and DVD to her dad. They sat and looked through all the photos. He kept looking at the program, saying he couldn't believe they'd all signed it for him (several had written messages, as well). She said that improved his mood immesurably.

    Starting in the next reply, the first of the pictures.

    Planes started showing up Thursday. We got a Corsair this year, in addition to the P-38 again. Planes of Fame had wanted to show all 3 models of Mustangs, and said if they could borrow Boise Bee they'd bring the Corsair up and park it at the Warhawk for a month. They did a pretty thorough job of going over it, cleaning it up and making sure it was fit to be flown for the weekend (I do have pictures showing more of the plane, really. Be patient).

    There were a couple of people conveniently at hand, to allow me to show the size of Skidoo.

    Friday got a little busier. We pulled out the museum's N3N, and Joe Dory brought his over. The T-6es showed up ( I don't think we'd had Heave Ho before, and it had been a while since Lil Ashlee was here), and Lady Jo and Speedball arrived that evening. Heather, Sue's admin assistant, got her first ride in a bi-plane. We started gathering together things like wheel chocks and making sure the tugs were working. The weather was all over the place, with the cloud cover, the types of clouds, or the lack changing faster than I could keep up with.

    And we managed to fit a bunch of the planes and tugs in the maintenance hangar! (There's more than the 4 planes and 4 tugs you can see)

    Lady Jo and Speedball Alice got a late start. They were coming after the pilots got off work, but it took longer than they expected to get off the ground. Transient parking near the hangars wasn't too full that evening, which held out hope that we wouldn't have a huge amount of traffic during the show. I'll post more tomorrow. It's late and I'm pretty beat.
