Aero-Note: During this
week's 2010 rendition of the "Friendliest Fly-In" we know, we
thought it paramount to revisit some of the heights of last year's
Arlington Fly-In... with the 'high hopes' that those of you who
were about to pass up this AMAZING Fly-In, might reconsider and
skedaddle yourself to Arlington, WA... which for the next few days
IS the Sport Aviation capital of the world!
IMPORTANT UPDATE: We thought we were all
done... and then we got some bad news... one of our favorite
stringers of all time has come up with a temporary
medical issue that precludes his working with us this year at
Oshkosh... so we have ONE slot open for a writer to help us
document the wonders and insanity of Oshkosh 2010... if
you are interested, be sure to let us know ASAP and we'll see if we
can work something out.
