"The order of the day was, do whatever you want. Which is fine for folks who have been vaccinated, but really risky for those who haven’t been." ~Plane&Pilot. I disagree. If you feel it is too risky don't participate. What I find interesting is the different "cultures" that attended this event. Florida is not locked down and promotes an individual responsibility philosophy. Other states promote community responsibility and expect more of a homogenous adherence to standards. I'm old and fat with a number of comorbidities. I wore my mask in the hangars but walked free and fearless in the open air out among the aircraft displays. I felt safe and would (will) do it again. My body, my choice.
Outside, most of the big players were there. Piper, Tecnam, Cubcrafters and Bristell, and many others had their full displays out. SportCruiser failed to attend. (Ominous). It was so good to see familiar faces and find out how they fared in the new world of Pandemic America. ALL are optimistic. 2021 is going to be a good year.
I got tired from the amount of walking. I'm clearly not getting enough exercise by staying in the house. It was so good to be out walking in the Florida sun.
We went back in the afternoon to enjoy the airshow. Nobody does it better than the Blue Angels!
