Come on ILM. One weekend every three years and you can't properly schedule to make this happen? We fly in and out of ILM for business at least four times a month and how many delays do we experience? Tons! How about the flight in December were we had an hour and a half delay on the tarmac because of mechanical issues...the real issue? There are no full time mechanics on duty to fix the problem... period! We had to wait for some contracted mechanic to wake up, get dressed and drive 30 minutes to come fix the plane. Maybe if ILM continued to host this type of big $$$, big attendance, beloved traditional event, they would be able to hire full time mechanics again! Delays .. "my you know what!"
