AirVenture 2009-Day 2

a380pylon1comflt1Today’s weather was perfect! Nice and sunny with low humidity…is this July in Wisconsin?

We got a rather late start this morning. Roy’s flight arrived rather late, or early depending on your perspective.  The severe weather we experienced here was also being experienced elsewhere which delayed his flight arrival until 1 AM. Managed to get about four hours sleep before spending more than 12 on the grounds today.

Had the privilege to interview Robert Harder a B-52D Navigator Bombardier who wrote the book “Flying From the Black Hole.”
