There is a reason that ANN dubbed the annual Arlington Fly-In
the Friendly Fly-In -- no other event produces as positive a vibe
as Arlington and does it with such consummate professionalism...
and yeah, its chock full of aviation goodness, to boot.
ANN sent two of our best folks to Arlington this year, to enjoy
and document the sites, sounds, stories and personalities of
Arlington 2009. ANN E-Media producer Paul Plack and Videographer
Nathan Cremisino wore out a lot of shoe leather but came wit big
grins on their faces and a sincere appreciation for a Fly-In that
"is run awfully well."
That opinion appears to have been shared by many... in light of
this year's report in which Arlington, the third-largest fly-in in
the country, saw a 14 percent boost in attendance over last year,
according to the organizers.
“What can I say, it was great - a phenomenal turnout this
year,” said Barb Tolbert, executive director for the fly-in.
“We are still verifying the number of aircraft – at
times the registrations even overloaded our system - but it looks
to be well ahead of last year.”
Come along with ANN's expert Aero-TV crews and enjoy some of the
highlights of the 2009 Arlington Fly-In in this as well as a number
of future Aero-TV Feature programs.
