Even though our feet are getting a little tired, there's still plenty to see and do around the grounds at EAA AirVenture '08. Fortunately for those who can't be here with us, we've given staff writer and crack photographer Mariano Rosales a camera and reminded him to snap picture whenever we do or see anything that will make people sitting at home jealous. Here's a sampling of how we spent our day, and yes it's even more fun that looks.
