I will see what I can do to make the "where ya'll from board" a little better for future events.

Really great to meet everyone.

Think I almost have Karen convinced to let me build an RV-14 (Thanks Marvin! .

Huge thank you for all of the really hard work everyone puts in to make this event the success that it is!

Default Campers at Petit Jean State Park

There is a small lake(Lake Bailey) south of RWY 3 with an RV camping area on the south edge of the lake. My wife and I went to the camping area to check it out as a potential place to go camping and we found out something very interesting. There were camper folks sitting on the lake shore in lawn chairs watching the airplanes doing formation and coming and going aircraft. It's only about a quarter of a mile from the end of the runway. What was interesting was that some of these campers coincide their camping dates with the dates for the Petit Jean RV fly-in just so they can watch the planes! One couple finds the dates on the the internet and reserves their camping spot months in advance and have been doing this for several years! How cool is that!

The fly-in was another success and we had a great time. Looking forward to next year!

Thumbs up Even people in RV's love RV's :-)

You're right about the campers across the lake. Normally there is a lot more flying going on and Saturday will have 50-100 flight operations of various sorts including visitors, fly/drop ins, formation work, pictures, fun flights etc. We think it's fun to watch and we get to see a lot of it. It's a pretty rare opportunity for someone to see regular flights, acro, and formation flights right from the campground and they really do like it!

There is a very nice lady that emails me every spring off the website address wanting to know our dates so that she can reserve sites for her and some of her family. She just happens to be local but they like to camp and just watch the airplane comings and goings! She tells me they really like it when the airplanes are landing 03 and taking off 21 because everything passes right over the campground area. One year she asked if all airplanes can smoke

Even people in RV's love RV's

Default Kent/Lana's video

I've seen Kent/Lana's video from a year ago. Did they make another one? If so can someone post a link here. I flew from lower Alabama but because of weather only made it as far as Pine Bluff, AR. Spent the night there and after waiting till mid afternoon for the weather at Pine Bluff to improve to MVFR, headed back to south Alabama.

Default Petit Jean Video

Not sure how long this will be in Kent’s Drop Box account so download it if you want to. It will end up on the www.PetitJeanFlyIn.com website one way or the other! Kent said to say thanks to the Paul, Sara, and Dan because about 2/3 of the pictures came from them.

Turn up the sound and enjoy the Petit Jean Magic
