EAA 731 Cookout at E40

Today we hosted a cookout for the members and friends of EAA Chapter 731.

Hanging out in the shade

It was so hot inside the hangar that we spent most of our time in the shade behind the building!

Good Turnout!

We had a great turnout, and got to meet a few folks who we have heard a lot about.

This event was a great opportunity to talk with several people who we have heard about but hadn’t met yet. These included Ben, Jim’s Wife, John, and others.
Fly-in Airplanes

Two airplanes flew in- the Bormuths and the Maule.

This was the first time that Tabitha had seen a Maule since she’s been working on our interior design, so she was eager to take notes and see how everything came together. The owners also shared lots of insight about what they like and don’t like about it. This was all very encouraging and motivating.
Brandon and his Cub

Brandon also flew in a little bit later. This picture is noteworthy because it includes our color choices- we'll use the same blue and white shades on our finish paint scheme, though the layout will be different.

From Across the Runway

Bradley and I crossed the runway to take pictures of the Maule departure.

Short Takeoff

They were flying in a short distance for sure!

Brandon made Ice Cream

Brandon's homemade ice cream was a real hit.

Overall the event was a great success, though we didn’t get to spend much time talking about the airplane. Hopefully we’ll do better next time when we have more work to show off and the weather is a bit more moderate.
