After a somewhat soggy opening day, the skies cleared and crowds gathered at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport for the Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-in and Expo in Lakeland, Florida. The event marks, for many visitors, the kickoff of a season of flying and fun. AOPA photographers stayed busy keeping up with the action.
Colorful aerobats performed daily airshows, and that was only part of what there was to see, and do. A career fair, demo flights, scores of vendors, and static aircraft displays also made this a perfect place for pilots, and camaraderie.
