Yesterday, Ottawa's McDonald Carter International Airport became the
site of the first ever XML-themed FlightGear.org fly-in.
The event's host, David Megginson thought the attendance was sparse at

that the FlightGear Fly-In will soon move to the top of everyone's
calendar, displacing tired, old ones OshKosh and Sun-n-Fun."

attendees are standing next to David's Piper Warrior II. Ari's rented
Warrior is in the background.
