    The Dallas wing of the CAF has their annual fly-in on Sept 5 down in Lancaster. They also host a car show at the event, which is a fine way to get good parking. There's a small fee to enter the show ($10 I think). This year they've confirmed that 1-of-2 flying B-24s will be at the show.

    Anyone interested in meeting up and doing an Italian car invasion?

    Sept 5th...I could possibly make it.

    Lancaster was the site of my brief aviation career in 1977.

    I'm thinking about taking the kids (4 year old boy and 3 year old girl) to this. As the children are so young we wouldn't be able to stay for the full 6 hours.

    With that in mind, does anyone know when would be the best time to show up if we only stay an hour or so? I would love for the kids to see some planes land and/or take-off...

    Thanks!

    usually late morning as the B-24 and cool stuff like that usually makes a fashionably late appearance. however, some of the stuff does come early, so to see it fly and land VERY early is good. overall I say later is better to see most planes and cars.

    I didn't make it. My wife and son decided to get sick instead. (Colds. No oink oink flu yet, I think.) I'll be sick in 3 days...

    Some year I'm going to make that show, it looks cool. Though Labor Day weekend isn't the greatest time.

    We should tell Russ to fly in from SA.....
