SUN N FUN 2012

Sun N Fun is an Annual Aviation fly in that takes in Lakeland Florida. This year it was on between the 27th of March until the 1st of April. We were there at the show this year, meeting people, meeting Aircraft manufacturers and their representatives, pilots, engineers, discussing projects, potential sales contacts and so on.

This Blog is mostly an Album of photographs taken at the Sun N Fun fly in and Splash In (for seaplanes) event.  Some of the photographs are captioned. Most Airplanes can be identified by our aviation enthusiasts  without captions. Click on image to expand view. Enjoy!
