2002 Sun 'n Fun

When pilots aren't flying they love to talk about flying and look at airplanes.  At the Sun 'n Fun fly-in/airshow/carnival held in Lakeland Florida every April, pilots can overdose on both.  The event is sponsored by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) to promote home-built and ultralight aircraft.  My friend Bob Kennedy attends regularly and took these photos with a Sony Mavica.   (If you would like to reprint or reuse any of these images, contact Bob at bob8080@aol.com)
