AVweb Fiddling Around America


There’s nothing like a little barnstorming to revive the aviator’s soul, and when it involves a vintage DC-3 we can’t think of a better way to pass the time. Watch AVweb starting May 25 for daily video blogs from Editor-in-Chief Russ Niles as he goes low and slow with Dan Gryder in the fabulous 1938 Herpa Douglas DC-3 for an unscripted tour of America. We know we’ll be in Huntsville, Ala. (3M5 – a 2,100-foot grass strip) on the evening of May 23 and at Gaston’s White River Resort (3M0) in northern Arkansas for the weekend of May 30. All are invited.

In between those dates, we could be anywhere – including your home airport!

Join Russ, Dan, champion fiddler Jeff Pritchard, and the DC-3 crew as they rumble in and play bluegrass music at unsuspecting GA airports during the 2,500-nm journey. Watch for reports at www.AVweb.com, and for instructions on how you can follow along, chat with the DC-3 crew live in flight (courtesy of Verizon Wireless) and join the fun!
