(13 pix)

If you're at Sun-n-Fun 2012 then you probably already know that 'spring break for pilots' actually began on Tuesday the 27th. I was able to make the trip from Indiana to Florida the last two years but just couldn't make it all come together for this year. However, my friend Ken Mist (@eyeno) from Canada was able to work his way south and has been sending me some photos for posting. Thanks Ken!

 So here's a little slice of what's happening at Lakeland Florida at Sun-n-Fun 2012:

Great pictures. Hope we'll see more. Too bad you couldn't be there.
