The perfect Sunday morning breakfast for real avgeeks must include bacon!
A total of 12 people made it to the 2nd annual AirPigz Air Force Museum Meetup over this last Fri - Sat - Sun, and it was a fabulous time of avgeek hangar flying and historic aviation overload. Can't wait to do it again next year! (more on that later)
In addition to spending time in the massive Air Force Museum facilities, many of us also gathered for several meals off site. Like the pic above from the final breakfast on Sunday shows, nothing sparks great avgeek hangar flying like tasty strips of bacon!
I'll have a detailed post (or several) in the coming months about many of the fantastic aircraft seen during the MeetUp, but for now I wanted to share some sweet teasers with you. If looking at these Research & Development Hangar pix below makes you all tingly inside, then I suggest you get yourself over to the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio sometime very soon!
