Air show - a fan
We brought Adan to the airshow in Lafayette today. From the first helicopter he saw to the last jet, Adan kept saying "you see!!??" It was so cute. He also said "plane" for the first time. He was very impressed with everything. Towards the end, he was soooo tired, and could barely keep his eyes open, but he tried! It was a beautiful day for it, too. We had alot of fun.

myTransponder Fall Fly-In -
In my previous post I mentioned the new social network for aviators, myTransponder. Although, I have met pilots from all over the country through the site I noticed there was an abundance of Midwest based pilots on myTransponder. About a month ago I decided it would be fun to meet the Midwest pilots in person. I used the myTransponder "Events" functionality to schedule a fly-in for Janesville, WI as it seemed to be centrally located for many of the pilots. Janesville also has a restaurant on the tarmac, Kealy's Kafe where we could enjoy a good meal among pilots. I was delighted that moments after scheduling the event several pilots had already replied that they were planning to attend. My only concern was if the weather would cooperate.

Guy Builds F-35 Fighter Jet On His Own [Airplanes]
from Gizmodo by Jesus 'Muerto Borracho' Diaz
Arthur van Poppel took our Guide to Build Your Own F-35 Lightning II Fighter Jet too seriously and actually built the damn thing. Sure, it is a scaled version and it doesn't come with a demonic helmet, but you can actually drive the thing like a car and the level of detail is absolutely amazing.
