Parked just outside Fairchild AFB for the Skyfest airshow

Recommended Posts

This is so cool, we are located in a great big empty field at the end of a dead end dirt road, half a mile from the downwind end of the runway, we can hear the band playing,  and we are kicked back in our recliners, under the shade of the awning, with the spotting scope and binoculars handy. I have the generator ready in case it gets blistering hot and we need to run the AC, but right now there is a light breeze and it is about 80 degrees.

 

Also have earplugs but I suspect they will not be needed, since most of the afterburner stuff will be further away. The show starts in half an hour. Pics to follow, I hope to get a pic of Mouse with looping smoke trails above. Or maybe a Thunderbird doing a knife edge turn....

 

I love this trailer. We are learning that we don't have to camp overnight to enjoy using it as a mobile club house. We will head out late afternoon and be home in 20 minutes.

 

Woohoo!

I like the idea of using them as "a mobile club house" too.  A guy near me has an Elite and uses it at the local car show every year.  Just minutes from home, it allows his wife to be in air conditioned comfort, and visit with her friends, while he hangs with the boys and talks cars.  It was the first Oliver I ever saw, about 6 years ago, and I really liked the idea.

 

Have fun at the show.

We had to move a little since all the action was half a mile south. We ended up in a perfect spot. A Hornet went right over us at about 500 feet agl, flat out, that was glorious. The sound of freedom! Here is my wife Jac in position..

That looks like fun :)

 

What's up with your awning? The front right side looks loose. After you crank it out all the way, put the center bar in and push out on the 2 pieces while tightening it into place against the main bar. Pulling in on it flexes the main bar in and allows the canvas to flex in the wind more also, allowing it to act like a sail. Then when the bars are all set, crank it in just enough to pull the canvas tight and this will help protect it if you get hit with a big gust of wind :)
