If you had the pleasure of attending the 2007 Lakeland Sun-n-Fun airshow, then you already know how absolutely perfect the week was for flying. If you were unable to make it out there this year, then it is my pleasure to hand you some pictures from day two of the event. The show that day Thursday) was primarily limited to warbirds, although there were some stellar performances byPatty Wagstaff in her Extra 300 and Steve Oliver in the Sundancer.

Also performing were Michael Goulian,Randy Harris, the Iron Eagle Team, Greg Koontz, and John Mohr.

\ Kent Peitsch did an unbelievable show; if you look closely at his little Jelly Belly airplane, you'll see at some points he was going straight into the trees, without an aileron. Besides the aileron, he also dropped papers out of the airplane, as well as a wheel off of his landing gear. Unfortunately, I think he was arrested at the end of his performance.

In attendance that day also were the Red Eagles, Tim Weber, the E-team Jumpers, Matt Younkin, and Bud Walker,still an absolutely stunning performer with years of experience under his belt.

There were so many terrific performers that I'm just not able to list them all. Besides Captain T.A. Lewis, flying the blue and yellow CJ6a in a war bird formation, there were so many warbird formation flights that I just couldn't possibly mention everyone's name here.

The amazing thing about the warbird formation flights was the fact that LAL tower was able to coax so DARN many of them into one single flight. In come instances, there were as many as six or seven individual formation teams of T-6, CJ6, CJ6a, Yaks, and P-51 Mustangs in one single group of formation flights. That feat, in terms of pilot experience and controller know-how, is truly amazing if you know anything at all about aviation. I've been to 30 years worth of air shows, and I'm an air traffic controller myself, and I've never seen anything like it before. Conversations with the controllers afterwards indicated that they probably will never do that again, so take a good close look at the war-birds,as you may never see that type of flight again.
