As Sun ‘n Fun 2017 kicked off on Tuesday, it appeared to be way more fun than sun. Clouds and nearby rain storms threatened to put a damper on the annual event at Lakeland’s Linder Regional Airport. However, any concerns have been replaced by the standard Sun n’ Fun excitement, as the skies opened up and the weather is peak Florida springtime.
Wednesday’s sweltering heat has finally been swapped out with a very pleasant cold front, and aviation enthusiasts have been at no shortage of good times. From the Blue Angels preparing for their weekend performances to the standard showcases of personal aircraft — not to mention the must-see residents of Warbird Country — Sun ‘n Fun 2017 has delivered everything we’ve come to expect and more.
Here’s a taste of this week’s early action, and we’ll have plenty more to come.
