Nice work Zim. I am anxious to get your impressions of the event. The hope, of course, was to lure warbirds from OSH and start a tradition. Part of that is born out of the continuing feud between the warbird faction and EAA. Gryder go his nose even further out of joint, understandably, when EAA changed the rules of the game on the "Last Time" mass arrival. There were two sides to that story and both had points.
Once again, I am so weary of trying to decipher what is fact and what is fiction, in every area of life today, my default is to file direct for my happy place and let people who enjoy and thrive on conflict, hash it all out. I could get more than a little worked up over Gryder using all my C47 images on everything from billboards to matted and framed fine art gifts to promote last time, not a mention of the photographer anywhere. I was at the dinner where he gave several large prints as gifts to significant attendees. I had a discussion with him after the event, but I felt like it was going in one ear and out the other as it was taking place. One of the reasons I blew this event off.
Have a safe and swift trip home, give my best to Jay.
