I'm just back. 'Twas a non-event, seemingly.

I had a clear view of the "vintage aircraft displays" as I arrived at the venue: perhaps 10 small Cessnas, the kind commonly evident at any rural airport. And that's all that was evident. I didn't fancy paying the $10 admission ($1/plane) when I could see and take in the sum of the show field from the road.

Every head turned to look at the Gear Up as I made a U-turn at the entrance. Perhaps I should have charged the organizers $10 to park the rig on the field.

The morning wasn't a complete write-off. I got the fluids nice and hot, and they're due to be changed.

I'm here now. It's a beautiful day to be out enjoying the planes. My brake pads were dragging though, my fault since I just changed them. Disconnected parking brake seemed to help l. I may put old pads back on, have them in my toolbag.
