Sun 'n Fun attracts about 4,000 airplanes, with a wide variety of classics, homebuilts, sport planes, and warbirds. This year's special-guest list includes a new air vehicle from the folks at CarterCopter, who promise to demonstrate a new Personal Air Vehicle prototype, an "aerial motorcycle." They plan to fly it in from Atlanta, stopping at gas stations, restaurants, attractions and other hotels along the way to Lakeland, to prove the aircraft's versatility, and arrive at the show at noon on Wednesday, April 5. The first civilian air show appearance of the F-22A "Raptor" stealth-technology fighter, America's newest fighter aircraft, is scheduled for Thursday, April 6. And lots more. If you can't be there in person, watch for AVweb's special coverage to automatically arrive in your inbox on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday that week, complete with galleries, interviews, and all the news from the show. Even if you're there, find a wifi spot in the shade and check out our news, to be sure you don't miss anything.
