Well the team arrived safely and got the booth in order. Early reports are that this year’s show is every busier than last. One of our guys reported that the aircraft parking areas seemed to fill up on the first day–something pretty unusual. One thing that wasn’t unusual was the crowds around the booth from the minute we opened the gate. I remember from working past years the crowd starting to form about 15 minutes in advance and pacing outside the hangar, which was roped off to non-exhibitors. The kids seem to be the most anxious and I can’t say I blame them. How exciting can even the world’s largest fly-in be for a kid after a few days of more or less the same thing?
