My 1st JOK..wow!!! pretty awesome. i met some great people who I only knew via on line. really impressive how much this was a pilot's event. Really pretty cool how all the folks we laid back, willing to help and were just all around some of the nicest people to hang with.

Thanks Lewis-I'll be back next year. Thanks John for doing such an awesome job on my 19# UltraFlash.

Joe

Got back from KJ on friday. left early to so i could catch the full scale FW 190 at the geneseo,ny airshow. ... should have stayed at KJ as the 190 did a no show :-(
I have to say that i had the best time at the KJ . Lewis did an outstanding job ! I have to say it was one of the best run events for it's size i have been to . I had a chance to chat with him in length about a lot of stuff . The thing that impressed me the most wasn't his love for the hobby but for kids. so with that being said i posted this pic of Lewis with his mini assistant lol The smiles say it all.

I just finished catching up on this thread, after getting back from JOK. I must say the event has grown a bit since my last visit in 2008. Great Job, Lewis. And great seeing a lot of my old freinds and making a lot of new ones. See ya' all next year.

First time I ever went to an event and came home with more planes and cash than I went with..................LOL

I thought Florida Jets was big...but Kentucky Jets earned my respect. It's like an outside Toledo show! No matter how busy Lewis Patton gets, he always has time to speak to you.
Thanks for a great weekend.

Lewis and your crew,
Thanks a bunch for all your hard work, for putting on one of the best jet meets going. I can really see over the years you listen to everyone's input and keep improving it every year, making it better and better.
I really liked how you and the flight line staff, handled the line for the startups, when it really got cranking. That really takes the stress out of it, when 12+ are ready to fly, and all the gate are full.
Kudo's also for the 2 great meals too...
John's auctioneering was downright entertaining

Keep up the great work, and go take a much needed vacation somewhere !!

Jerry and I had a great time, and thanks again !

The amount of time and effort to put on the Grandest Jet Event is something most of us don't usually think about when we are there experiencing it but after it is over and have time to reflect, we realize the work and sweat that goes into it. For that I say thanks to Lewis and his crew for another memorable Kentucky Jets.

Bob, you are one crazy dude!! Dancing banana, dancing cup...wait a minute, who's driving the truck???!!! [X(]
It was great seeing you and getting all the 14's up. See you at Best in the West. There we will have 4 of them (maybe even 5!). Should be a good time for sure. Can't wait for the video's.

Jim, congrats on People's Choice award. WELL deserved my friend. Your wing sweep in the middle of your roll is unreel! You really got it down. Hope to see you in Calif.
