"Come in flight tower? This is the LEGO Experience Tour requesting land at the Great Georgia Air Show."
"LEGO Experience Tour, you're clear for land."
And land we did! But not for too long, because the East Team and minifigure took to the sky for a little air show preview in a Dixie Wing C-45 with the Commemorative Air Force! It was amazing to think that we were riding in a plane from World War 2 as we passed over the quarries, forests, pools, and mansions in the Peachtree City area!
After safely making it back on the ground, we got to spend the next two days building at show center with all sorts of je
ts and planes zooming overhead! This proved to be quite the inspiration for a lot of builders. The Construction Experience turned into an air show itself as folks made jets, helicopters, planes, air traffic control towers, and airports! Take a look
at this LEGO bi-plane and runway that Nick built. It could have been flying with the big planes!
Over in the Family Challenge, families were yelling over the sound of the Navy's F/A 18 Hornet jet to give building instructions in a game called Listen Up! With this game, one person is the "director" who secretly builds something and then gives instructions to the rest of the team to try and recreate the same creation. It's a great game to build effective communication...even in the noisiest of situations!
We had a peachy time in Georgia, but the road is calling us again. There is a state fair in Raleigh, North Carolina waiting for us! See you there!
