The Airbus 380 will make it's appearance. Check out the flight deck of this amazing huge aircraft. http://www.airbus.com/store/mm_repos...h/cockpit1.htm

The pilots that will be flying this heavy in, one is from Mason, MI. If you check out the latest copy of Sport Pilot there is a really cool article about the 380 comig to Airventure.

Jenny and I plan to be at Oshkosh July 27 (late arrival). We will be supporting the Coast Guard booth in Hangar A (I believe.) We will be there through the 30th (Thursday) and will leave for home on Friday morning.

Our cell phone numbers are:
Jenny (804) 337-0653
Jim (804) 647-2461

We'd love to see any other Skymaster folks!

Note from Herb

It's show time today
It has been really cool watching all the arrivals. Comanches yesterday. Spent a long time at the museum yesterday. After like 20 or more years of attending OSH I never took in the museum. It was awesome. Camping is an experience that I really glad I did. The weather has been perfect and looks to be forcast as good. Spent some time with Steve G. and Sandy yesterday. They are parked 10 rows ahead (north) of us. The arrived about 2 hours ahead of us Saturday. We saw a "wanna be" 02 land yesterday and they have the real thing on display over by the exhibits. Not sure what the story is but we will report back. Headed for warbirds this morning, wish you were all here. If you are planning to come in this week please e mail or call me.

If you are referring to the O2 near the LSAs, a university is using it to test airfoils. They have mounted an airfoil vertically on the left hardpoint. They have mounted instrumentation in the old radio racks for the testing.

They also visited Don Neiser on the way out.

Herb - I will try to call you tomorrow

Herb.

As had previously informed you, I am flying in for the day on Thursday 30 JUL 2009, probably arriving at OSH around 10:30AM or so (since IFR reservation landing at FLD and shuttle busing in from there).
Will call you on your cell phone, since want to stop by and see your aircraft.

Oshkosh Update

Great Day on Wednesday. Absolutely perfect weather. 70 degrees with a nice breeze and puffy clouds in the sky. Met Jim and Jenny Stack today at the Aviat Husky booth. We had a great time talking 337 and finally meeting. They will fly back on Friday.

The DC 3 from Riverview Airport 08C flew in this morning. They had about 10 guys with them and some rookies to Osh Airventure. What a great way to come, in a DC 3. Plenty of camping room under the wings. They parked in the south 40 near a couple Albatross'.

Good airshow on Wednesday. We sat with Steve and Sandy Gufstason (sp) and watch the show again. The jet powered glider flew and lots of other stuff. There was a Beech Bonanza doing a show too. Quite amazing actually.

We attended the Vintage Aircraft Association picnic and met a good bunch of people. After dinner we came back to the VAA area and watched Andrew fly the Pitcarin Autogyro. Wow now that was a treat. If you are an EAA member there is an article in the last issue. Talk about a restoration project.

It has been really neat to talk to all the people interested in Skymasters and some of them have never been on the web site or message board. I have invited them all to join and participate. Several are owners of Skymasters.
