  1. Sitting here in Wilmington NC I am very envious, I am not there. God willing next year. My first year was 1985. I returned in 2005 bought a plane there and then spent a year getting my Pilots lisence. I flew that plane back in 2012. That was my Mecca trip. Every pilot must do it at least once.

    Thanks to kitplanes for coverage of the preopening.
    Keep up the good work
