Spider-Man and Hulk visit Tinker Belle


Two special super heroes visited Tinker Belle over the weekend at the Stuart Air Show!

Jesse, James and their mom Emily, took a tour of Tinker Belle over the weekend and Emily sent us an email after the show.

----
My 3 and 4-year-old sons and I went to the Stuart air show yesterday and their favorite part was going onto the Tinker Belle and getting to meet the pilot! While the F-22 was raging outside, they were covering their ears, happily safe inside Tinker Belle!!

Thanks so much for bringing your beautiful plane and letting us take photos with you!
Sincerely,
Emily
