AMA has published the “official” dates for this year’s Nats. The real question, however, is when did the Nats begin for the pilots?
Yes, they had to register before the deadline, they made transportation and living arrangements, they coordinated with friends, and many other things.
Many traffic delays caused my arrival at AMA’s IAC to be much later than was the plan. On arrival, the sun was setting, but that didn’t stop pilots from one extra trim flight. Bryan Hebert was flying his biplane on Site 3. Check out the setting sun.
