Default Is the Joe Nall too big?

This years Nall was greats and bigger than ever with over 1300 pilots. But I am starting to think that it's so large, that its not as fun as in the past. As a flyer and spectator it's difficult to see everything. The 'huckfests' and Seff are more my style. What do you think ?

I'd never go,, wait for hours for a 10 minute flight, or sit there and watch guys fly ARFs, sure they are tallented, but it's not for me as a pilot or a spectator.

Seams to me it's become what they built it to replace

Nall has greatly expanded since I was there 5 years or so ago. I couldn't believe how many more campers/tents/rv's/etc were there this time. I only observe so the more the merrier imho. It was just a day trip this time, I might expand to an overnight next time. Camping with my boys would be fun, the weather is still cool enough in May.

I was there for six days and I never had to wait longer than a half hour to fly. While the 3D line is an arf showroom the main line had plenty of beautiful aircraft as it always does.

You make some excellent points. 10 years ago when there was the main flight line I think the wait was a lot longer

Before the multiple flight lines and 2.4 when Everyone had to fly at the now "main" flightline, yea, the flying wait was long and it was to big. Now with the multiple flight lines and 2.4, until it gets to the point of being like riding a commuter train in India.. Its NOT to big

No, not too big. It's growth has made it different. On the plus side there is so much more and worth it all. On the negative side, it is a little less mobile and more trouble to fly. Just don't bring as many planes for a short stay. I plan to stay longer next year.
