IAH Airport Festival

It was great. It was celebrated in the Continental hangar, right next to runway 26. They let us walk on the apron and go inside a Fedex DC-10. The airplanes were so close to us it was so cool. It was the 19th annual festival.

Did anyone else go?

Missed it this year. Last year they didn't have very much. Nice to see FedEx brought a real airplane this year instead of an A310. Did they sell CO DC-3 rides this year? Last year I paid $50 and had a blast.

Just a reminder, Hobbyfest is November 18-19. I went last year and there's tons more stuff there than they've ever had at IAH Appreciation Day. Last year they had the Save A Connie L-1049H, a BAC 111, and a brand new WN 737-700. The Connie will be back this year. They also plan to have the CO DC-3 and a Convair 580.

no they didn't have a CO DC3 there.

Another thing that was great. There were many airlines there: Lufthansa, Delta, Aeromexico, American, Northwest/KLM, TWA. They gave away lots of cool stuff.
