Thumbs up Eagle's Nest Projects - SnF 2016

Eagle's Nest Projects / Sun and Fun 2016
Seven (7) student-build aircraft on display!
1-Indiana; 2-Florida; 1-Wisconsin; 3-Texas



Brief at MillionAir Sanford for SnF 6-ship arrival. (Wisconsin at the show holding our place)


Photo-op after SnF arrival


On camera interview with Kevin Lacey (Repo man and mentor at McKinney, TX Eagle's Nest Project)


Eagle's Nest Projects presentation at the SnF museum




Sun and Fun was an outstanding show this year and the weather was near perfect every day.
Two Texas birds headed back to their nest after a GREAT week at SnF.

Default Closing the chapter on SnF 2016

Many of the student-builders, mentors, and members of our community support team asked that I share their appreciation for your kind words and support. "From all of us...Thank You!"

Before closing the chapter on SnF 2016, I would like to personally recognize some of the individuals and groups that went that extra mile in support of our program. Deserving the highest praise of course are the the build-students who built the aircraft, kept them spotless during the show, maintained the grounds, were always available for meet and greet with visitors, handled 'on-air' time at SnF radio, and were superstars in a one hour Eagle's Nest presentation at the museum. And in no particular order, MillionAir-Sanford for providing overnight hangar space for six aircraft and full use of their fabulous FBO facility; SnF volunteers and in particular the marshaling crew and HB parking - they knew we were coming, coordinated our arrival, and parked all aircraft together in a visible area; Austin Malcomb, a student-builder on Eagle's Nest One, private pilot, and student at Purdue - he flew Eagle's Nest One from Indiana to Florida, missed the show because he had to be back at school on Monday, then returned on Saturday to fly EN-1 back to Indiana with his dad; Scott Malcomb, JetBlue instructor and Aviation Director/Mentor on two builds at Circle Christian School - Scott is one of those individuals that just makes things happen. It would take ten pages to list what he (and his beautiful wife Sara) did to make this an outstanding show for us; and last but certainly not least, the team of pilots and co-pilots that brought 7-aircraft into SnF and returned them back to their nests without incident!

Chapter closed- preparing for Oshkosh
