Re: EAA Air Venture Oshkosh 2021

I imagine the two airshow centers would involve using runway 9/27 as a second show line. Will be interesting to see how this plays out. Glad to hear they are exploring different possibilities for the event. It might not be the Oshkosh we're used to, but it would certainly be better than nothing if t...

Re: Airshow 'Map'?

Something like this would be hand, though I expect it would be a lot of work. As it stands, I'm happy looking at a calendar and having Google Maps open to calculate drive distances :P .

Re: TBM Avenger Reunion Salute To Veterans

We're having domain issues, but we'll get the website back up and running shortly. Should be a good time in May with everything people have expected from the event. It is encouraging to hear that they are still on track for May. Thanks for sharing that. This is one of the events I plan my summer an...

Re: EAA Air Venture Oshkosh 2021

We have had 2-4 P-40s each year I have attended. There are 350+ warbirds at Oshkosh in a typical year. They obviously don't all fly in the airshow, but it's impressive if you have any interest in warbirds. Honestly sometimes the flying program ends up being the least interesting part of the day for ...

Re: EAA Air Venture Oshkosh 2021

I really wish some p-38s and p-47s would show. You rarely see them at Oshkosh and I don’t understand why. I would love to see P-47s. Unfortunately, I only know of one operator who is a regular participant at Oshkosh and owns a P-47 - and that's Rod Lewis. His P-47 "Balls Out" is the only ...

Re: Warbird News

The Fagen Fighters Hellcat recently flew for the first time after a 2.5 year restoration at Fighter Rebuilders in Chino. This aircraft was formerly on display at Yanks Air Museum. The Fagen museum should also have an A6M3 Zero joining the airworthy fleet in the near future. Last I heard, that aircra...
