A few racefans and myself will be watching Air racers 3d on Sunday the 27th.

This is opening weekend and the last time I talked to the museum they said Steve-O or the directors will be there. Planning on watching the movie and hitting up the museum as well.

If any members are planning on seeing this at Evergreen it would be cool to see you.

We will be wearing section three shirts.

Evergreeen has not posted show times yet.

Great news. I'll be driving up to BC in August to pickup my dad and bring him to Reno for couple weeks. The plan is a 2 day return trip with spending one night in McKinneville and visiting the museum.

Thats just a nice area, and the museum pretty cool as well. I'll have to watch the movie with pops.

I was really disappointed that they did not get a shuttle or at least the Enterprise. The Northeast region got a Shuttle and the Enterprise, Northwest region nada. The Evergreen folks even had the 3rd building ready for one:confused:

I have it from some really good sources that Evergreen was absolutely going to get a shuttle, but our wonderfull Senator David Wu failed to fill out some paperwork that was needed. This was shortly before Wu resigned due to drug/ethics/being crazy problems.

Thanks asshole.

We've been planning a trip over the bumps to check it out, so maybe we'll just make it this weekend instead of next... Was kind of looking forward to a long quiet weekend at home to work on the unlimited racer of the future though:

That was Sunday, the first time I had the wings and gear legs on it. He was WAY excited! If it'll fit in the car, I plan on pushing him around the pits this year:)

Not totally correct - The Museum of Flight at Boeing Field is supposed to get one of the flight sims and the public can get up and personal with it.

Will be ther this week-end for the Aluminum Overcast and will check it out.

The Museum of Flight Seattle is getting the FFT, Full Fuselage Trainer. It will be housed in the Simonyi Gallery, across the street from the main MoF building that houses the Great Gallery and Personal Courage Wing. It's accessable from a sky bridge.

Yes, you'll be able to have "hands on" experience where every STS crew member walked and trained. While not a "space craft" it is nonetheless a very unique artifact that you can touch and feel.

Hey ShermB...I'll be out of town this weekend and miss the show at MoF. Sorry to miss you as well. Hope you have a great time and will I see you at PRS? Next time you're in Seattle, please let me know and I'll be happy to give you the "Elivs Tour" of MoF. Been a Docent there for over 10 years. Great place...great folks.

Will take you up on the personal tour. Been there many times over the years. CWB used to meet there 2nd Sat every month of the non-flying season, then we alternated between Paine and MOF. Most of us like the MOF meeting site better than in the hanger at Paine, but can't beat it for special events. Two long time friends Docents for years - Bob Drew and Bruce Haskin. Known 'em for over 25 years. Very small world we live in. I may even know you by face rather than name for that matter.:)

I wouldn't trust either one of those guys any farther than I could throw 'em........

Do you know if it's playing this weekend? On their site, the first mention of it is June 5th. Then a private showing for members only on the 7th.

I was really hoping to fly down this weekend and check it out. Seems like we've been waiting forever.:rolleyes:

It is. I have been talking to them. The show times are still not listed but they told me it is opening friday.

I called down this afternoon and the gal told me they would have it Saturday but the public showings wouldn't start till Monday. Sounds like Saturday and Sunday would be for museum members only. Do members friend's count? :)

What???

that's not what she told me.

I guess I have to call them again.

I think she is confused. Website clearly states that the movie starts May 25th. There are a bunch of member only events happening around the movie in June.

Ya it's a little confusing and I hope I'm not making it worse.

I just don't want a bunch of people showing up and not being able to get in. I realize your group is shooting for Sunday, but ask her about Saturday too.

Thanks man!

Cool, I'll have a voodoo shirt on, and the boy will have a Reno shirt on also, unless he spills something on it, lol

My name is Kelly, btw :-)

Movie was just okay. The folks who had not been to reno enjoyed it more. I realize they were screwed by the turn of events

I'd agree with that assessment. We went to the noon showing, and didn't see any section 3 shirts (off screen;)).

One thing that i really don't like about 3D movies though, is it always seems like there's a point where my eyes can't focus on the subject. I think I'd rather just stick to 2D...:dunno:

Watched it today at Evergreen, and thought it was good, very much enjoyed it. I wish they would have included more air racing. Also saw Fighter Pilot about the war games at Nellis AFB NV. thought it was excellent.
I also saw Lewis and Clark, and although NON aviation related, was very good, enjoyed it a lot too and would highly recommend it.
