More EAA photos

A couple of photos from yesterday's breakfast at Buhlow.  This is the little Pineville Municipal Airport, also known as 2LO, which is a cool airport identifier for an airport that has a floatplane runway.  2LO is home to the Central Louisiana chapter of the EAA,

This little bird is called the Sonex, a homebuiilt rig that looks like it's supersonic, just sitting still.  The owner had polished the little bird until it shown like a mirror, a beautiful little aircraft that he has every right to be proud of.

And, of course, with the the military nearby, some aviators from the Army had to drop in to see what all the fuss was about.  I don't think they actually ever touched down, but they hovered around for a few minutes to look at the airplanes, and display a little military technology.  If they'd have set the bird on the ramp and let the enthusiasts look at it, I'd have bought breakfast for the crew.
They didn't stay for breakfast, but they treated the kids to a good show, culminating with a fly-by as they departed.
