Where in Illinois is the Spadfest held and what are the dates ? I would definitely go, but have not heard of the place or dates.

Thanks Cary

I'll be there - and I'll have SPAD #1, and a few other originals there too! I am looking forward to a little e-flying in the hangars! Oh yeah - maybe even a little jam session in there somewhere too!

Come on out - it'll be a blast!

Man,
I thought about going, but thought I was too far away. I see that you're a couple hours further away than I am, Kraut. Have you been there before, and was it worth it.

Joe - I have indeed been there before (to Rantoul - AKA Chanute AFB before a round of closings shut her down). I attended Jet Mech Tech School there from July to Oct 1986. So did Tattoo - so this will be a homecoming of sorts! I have no idea what it looks like now that the city owns it.

I plan to drive my RV up with a couple of my friends. It will be good to be at a flying field and not be the only one flying a SPAD.

That won't be easy.
I'm already in trouble for trying to get a mass hover together.
