Day 2 of our Gyro Lunch Express took us to Cooper’s BBQ in Llano, TX.  If you want the very best BBQ in Texas, try Coopers in Llano.  We were glad to have John Craparo join us in his World Record Setting Magni M16.  KathyD hopped in the back of my machine and added to the fun of the flight. In all,  five Magni Gyros made the trip. We appreciate the controllers at Georgetown Municipal Airport always making it easy to fly through their airspace. And when we touch down in Llano,  “Llano Larry” and the friendly folks at Llano Municipal Airport are always on hand to greet us . They even provide transportation from the airport to Coopers.
