EAA AirVenture 2009 Galleries: Day Five


It’s our fifth day at EAA AirVenture 2009 and the fourth day of the show. Yes, we’re recovered our ability to tell which day is which, and even though we’re still a little bleary-eyed and maybe just a tad bit unkempt, we’re having more fun than airplane people should be allowed. Join our AirVenture intern Adam for another romp around the grounds to see why.


Lots of activity at the ultralight runway.

The amphibious light sport SeaRey.

The Predator B unmanned aerial vehicle.

If you’ve been watching the live AVwebCam – this is it!

The all-glass panel of a Flight Design MC includes a new Garmin panel.

Bill’s Dream. This airplane has burned twice and been restored twice. It’s a very interesting story.

The wing-walker, at this point, was not clipped into a harness.

Another display waiting in the rain for people to come over.

Guess they were all here – waiting to get into the A380.

An engine and the short propellers on a C-130 Hercules.

A Bear 360. The airplane for people who have a warbird inside of them.

Putting cowl covers on an A380 is an involved process.
