EAA AirVenture 2009
The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) wrapped up its AirVenture event this weekend. I have to say, it is a class act. There is so much to see, too much for the two days we were there.
What struck me the most about the weekend was the awareness I experienced about the sights and sounds of World War II. Nothing can fully replace the experience of being in war, but I felt that they replicated it very well, with respect and admiration for any service man past or present. I think it's important to remember what veterans of war have experienced and the price that many have paid for the freedom we so often take for granted.
Here are the pictures I snapped while there. For more professional pictures of the event, visit the EAA website.
