Waiting at MKE for our flight back down to ATL. Enjoyed Jambalaya Tuesday night. Volunteered at the Blue Barn Wednesday afternoon. Great Young Eagles dinner Wednesday night and a lot of walking took place. Got to thank Bede for donating a BD-6 kit to our youth build program. Great dinner last night with some chapter members and ice cream at Ardy and Eds.
Doesn't count if you don't park on the grass.
So that's way the line guys yelled at me when I started setting up my tent!
Anybody meeting up today?
Ya. I'm the guy in a blue shirt and EAA hat.
What? Really? I think I saw you earlier today and I'm in North Carolina.
Had fun watching the Blue Angels with ya! Safe travels home
We got stuck back at the dorms with a work emergency... had to watch the Blues from afar, but it was neat from that perspective. You normally don't get to watch their rejoins and setup air work.
Great meeting you. See you next year!
2) Right place, right time
3) Aviation is a small world
May try to create a youtube account just to post the videos here for ya'll to see. Those guys are good. At one point two's prop had to be within a foot or two of our wing tip. The one I was in is one of 11 left that saw combat. It was in the European Theater WWII.
Hey...I think I saw you.
Btw Radar.....I now have you on ignore.
Back in Atlanta 15 hours from when I left. Not a bad way to spend the day!
Great to see you today, Dave! Thanks for stopping by and visiting.
Likewise. Hope to see you in Denver soon.
Panel was pretty nice to listen to, the guy wanting to have his a&p install is going to be in for a ride---we talked with Jay at Bendix-King and had a nice discussion about why that would not make sense since a 145 shop is still going to be in the mix.
Last full day here. :-(

Buzz Aldrin popped into a dinner I was at last night... weird, but cool surprise.
Why do you (or BKing) think that is true?
As with anything, people should do their due diligence. As such, I look at all angles including listening to what almost all of the manufacturers stated they will require for warranty ( 145 shop must inspect installation), Appareo being the exception---which actually seems like a good transponder.
And of course The Monkey wasn't with you to meet Buzz. I think he would have gotten a kick out of the primate. Where's that rascal anyway?
Family's First time here. 5 full days and didn't come close to doing everything we wanted. Spent most mornings gawking at aircraft and products. Never seen so many aircraft and campers/tents in one place. Mind boggling. Heard others describe but cannot truly imagine until you experience it for yourself.
Another mind boggling experience; happened to overhear and witness a $2,000,000+ aircraft sale take place. Guys acted as if it was a $20,000 car purchase. No big deal to them.
Makes me feel poverty level....... Had that feeling a lot this week. LoL

Mulligan bought a Cirrus jet?!
We got lucky enough to show up on the JumboTron every five minutes, all week long.
Y'all offer CFI renewals? With or without ACR processing? Thanks.
Should have Rambo03 (B-1) showing up soon for flybys.
I clearly need to get Tapatalk installed on my phone. I missed all the PoA meetups!
I will dearly miss everything about Oshkosh for another 51 weeks. Except for the generators (and inconsiderate owners that leave them running after 10:30, or the ones that bring crappy, giant, loud, smoke-belching contractor-grade generators). I don't miss those one damned bit.
Come stay in the dorms away from it all ;-)
I was told there are gen-free zones and gen-friendly camping. So, presumably one can book into a gen-free zone?
I don't recall seeing anything about gen-free camping, save for the electric/water sites. But, I tent, so, paying $67 a night instead of $27 seems pretty silly.
There is a 24-hour generator area, which is great. They should also have a 24 hour gen-free area.
All of that said... I know that the EAA folks and their volunteers bust their freaking butts to put on this show. They are working with very limited resources, and have a million irons in the fire at the same time (becoming involved with trams this year exposed me to that reality). So, I really, really appreciate all the work that they do, and that no matter what, they will not please everybody, and that *any* changes they make in an attempt to improve things for the greater good (like putting 24 hour gen near Rt. 41) or make things more efficient (modifying tram routes) will always get someone's knickers in a bunch.
Didn't heard too many generators in the North 40. Can't really schlep big ones in most aircraft. Lots of busses, though.
there were a few of those light weight Honda types....but, they're quiet.
This one wasn't though.
note: I know it's been posted before.
VTEC kicked in, yo!
This matches my own perception of the event. The resources aren't there to enforce any rules they might make. What resources they have are used to get people in and out safely. For the most part the event works because people behave and are considerate of each other. The entitled tools of the world take advantage of this and do whatever they want. I'm just glad there aren't more of them.
Love me some VTEC! I had an S2000 and that was a blast.
The jambalaya and chili was great! Thanks to whoever for the invite and for cooking!
