    N1939K, the Beech 18 with the flames on the props and nose, is based here. Beautiful plane

    I guess there weren't any Starships at Oshkosh. That plane can't be beat

    the video is kinda like flipping through a deck of cards, kinda hard to study any photo in .5 seconds. maybe you're supposed to pause it on each one, ??

    I agree, it is not even over yet. They do have a goods start at "The 1,000 best planes at OSH 2015".

    They need to add a Beech Stagerwing. Model 17. :D

    Flawed list..I didn't see the polished spartan executive in the video.

    And rv's were well represented that's for sure. Alot of pretty ones!

    Mine is the yellow/white one with the folding chars beside it, the beer cooler under it, and the tent behind it.

    That's the first time I've ever heard anyone describe a Wilga as being beautiful.

    Also, this guy must have a thing for O-2s, he included two of them.

    Again, there was nothing in that vid that said "beautiful." That description was nothing more than the OP's misnomer.

    I didn't say anything about the website...now did I? The video simply says "100 amazing airplanes." It says nothing about "beautiful." So, some journalist misrepresented the vid...that surprises you how?

    And, true, the OP's misnomer was driven by said journalist.

    The Free Bird was there and not in the video, hence they missed one in my opinion. I do admit to a small bit of bias, however.

    I got a good look at that one. Pretty!

    Also loved the 172 converted to a taildragger with 180HP and an interior and exterior you could eat off of...
