Still almost 2 months to go before the new year but I’m already antsy to break out the cameras and head out to watch airplanes.
Here in the Great White North (take off eh?) the airshow season cranks up around the beginning of June. Looks the Waterloo Airshow will be first of the mark in this area with their show on the first weekend of June.
Since that’s a long dry stretch between here and there I took the plunge and made my bookings to attend SUN n FUN in Lakeland Florida at the end of March.
Lakeland is about 1/2 way between Tampa and Orlando and is second only to Oshkosh for Fly-In participation and large crowds of aviation enthusiasts. This event has been on the bucket list for a while so it will be good to cross this one off.
Air Canada flight to Tampa booked (thank you Aeroplan). Courtyard Marriott in Brandon booked. Rental car booked. Tickets purchased. Flying down Monday the 26th and coming home late on April 1. Sunshine, warm weather and things that fly. That’s the way to beat the winter blahs!
