    AK Airmen's Show 2022 - Who's going?

    Alaska Airlines willing, Laura and I are headed up to the Airmen's show for the first time since 2019. No booth this year, just looking forward to seeing folks and catching up.

    Anybody else heading up from the lower 48?

    And you appear to still be operating on a lower 48 time zone.

    Nah. Grew up on a farm just up the road from you. Getting up early is just a habit.

    I’ll be there with my son. Looking forward to catching up with folks. Speaking of catching up, I’m in indoc / ground school this week - will be flying for an outfit that serves a lot of the lodges in King Salmon, and will be flying with good guys I’ve worked with earlier. It’s great being back.

    Speedo,

    Wish I was going to be out there this summer. Really bummed I am not headed that way. What you flying?

    I am expecting about zero chance of getting up to Anchorage. But maybe someone can have fun for me?

    Anyone headed through Haines let me know, I can meet you at the main airport, or come out to the home strip.
    I don't know where you've been me lad, but I see you won first Prize!

    Flying the C130 in on friday and hanging out all weekend, if anyone from lower 48 wants to come up I can send a few buddy passes on Alaska Airlines (travel has been rough and the operation has been bad recently, so no promises this works) also have a free garage apartment to stay in Eagle River and spare shitty car but it will get you to/from Palmer Airport, weather is looking good for the weekend.

    Hitting the road Friday AM driving down from Fairbanks. Should be a good time as always. Always fun to see new toys!

    Safe travels all!

    Folks, the weather here has been the best I have ever seen for the show. The new (new to me at least) venue of the Fairgrounds is mostly good! Great seeing folks we have not seen for a few years, and checking out the new stuff. We will be back in the morning! (Today, we snuck out at noon and went to Talkeetna as the weather demanded it!).

    Enjoy your days. The world is open again so this Alaska boy went east instead.

    Sagres, Portugal. The beginning of yet another great day. Life is good!

    Dan L it was great to run around with you.
    Sorry I missed you Oz. Maybe next time
    in short…..it was a great time. Awesome weather!!

    Think I will stay a few days in the cabins and do a little fishing.
