Exclamation Calendar

This would make a great addition to the Calendar (See Header on this page). You’ll get more publicity because Doug picks up the Calendar items on his daily updates of the VAF News.

if you can make this event do it. great location, great eaa fund raiser. don't do any crazy flying there as one of our kind found out last year.
last year we were witness to an amazing sight. standing on the runway we watched a hawk and small bird doing this acrobatic fight demonstration just just 10 feet above us. both birds diving turning climbing as the little one looking as it was pestering the big bird continually. eventually the little guy disappeared. where did he go? like magic gone. no he had landed on the hawks back. his head was just behind the hawks head. like the hawk didn't even know he was there he kept flying above us. :roll eyes: it was the coolest thing ever. hope to see this pair again this year.

Great event I visited last year. Lots of entertainment. Are you flying a sling wing or RV Turbo?
