Q-talk 152 - Sun-N-Flop

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Attendance at the 2012 Sun-N-Fun Fly-in was perceived to be WAY down this year, and it seems like most people attribute that to the way the organizers handled the clean-up from the tornadoe last year. Jerry Marstall hosted the QBA forums this year and provided this brief report.]

Hello Dan,
Attached is the list of attendees. Just the usual chatter during the forum. Nothing worthy of note except that Paul Buckley from England was there.

The show was disappointing. Nothing new. Lots of vendors missing, ie Cirrus was the biggest.

In spite of the PR saying it was record attendance, the showing was low. The homebuilt parking area had more open slots than last year and there was no problem walking through the vendor buildings.

Lots of places to sit to watch the airshows. Some of the big airshow performers were absent (Sean Tucker).

That's about it,
