    Default Oshkosh Airventure

    Hey Guys,

    Well its no Reno, but Oshkosh is getting close. Below are the dates that Scaled Composites will be speaking at this years EAA Airventure. I will be giving three talks this year and as always air racing will be covered. EAA is dedicating Thursdays show to Burt for his retirement. Some Scaled engineers have restored a couple of Burt's old airplanes and will be flying them out to pay tribute to the boss man. Friday will include a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Voyager flights. As usual we will have Wasabi Swag for distribution at the talks. I hope everybody can make it out!

    I'm looking forward to Airventure and participating in the Airventure Cup race. I hope to catch some of the presentations (including yours!).

    What other aircraft are being restored for the trip to OSH besides the Catbird?

    Hope to meet you there,

    Race 83,

    Currently the aircraft that are publicly being prepared to honor Burt at Oshkosh are the Catbird and the Boomerang. The rest we'll just have to wait and see!

    Hope to see you there.

Ok, there is the heat and humidity and Jerry's one man band....but does anyone know if the mini P-38 and the mini B-17 are showing up?

    You guys are makin' me drool here.. Last few times I went to OSH and SnF, I was working as a "pitch man" for an aircraft project, probably spent almost zero time anywhere but the display tent the last time I went, a couple years ago.. They did have the A380 though.. which I did get to see fly.

    It's funny... if you wind up working at air shows.. which, it seems pretty much what I do when I do get to airshows these days... it starts "feeling like a job"...

    Man-o-Man.. I need to get "the feeling" again..



    Nice thread, building the excitement is a good thing!

    Last year we got locked out for the water (like everybody else). Anyway we arrived overhead at 10k with a full bag of gas and nobody to dance with. So we just orbited the airport for like an hour and a half. Watched the DC-7 arrive which was something I had really been looking forward to. The whole time there was that standard midwestern sky full of big puffies; lots to look at, nowhere to be, and lots of gas to get there. Most importantly we didn't have any talks to give or meetings to take, just hang out, keep the motor happy, and look out for traffic. It was really great.

    I threw some pictures below, the last one of the Caudron, thats my favorite area in the whole state of wisconsin. Tree cover, lots of well buffed dope and fabric, grass. I wouldn't miss it for the world.
