    Just a reminder Airventure 2010 starts this 7/26 and goes till 7/31. As of right now I plan on going on opening day to see the 40 plus DC-3's fly in and will go again on 7/28 which is the 75th anniversory of the first flight of the B-17. Any one looking to hook up let me know and we will see what we can do. Here is a list from Airventure of some of the aircraft that are suppose to show up. This list is hardly complete as EAA is expecting around 400 warplanes from different era's this year.

    EAA AirVenture Oshkosh - Aircraft Attractions

    And yes Wojtek if the Fw-190A-9 shows up thats on the schedual then I will take plenty of pictures for you old friend :)

    All the best
    Paul

    I cant say much, I live a half hour down the road from it but the money is not there this year so will have to settle for two day. Still better then none. If you change your mind VB let me know and we will hook up.

    You need to go at least once. I've been there 4 times. The first time in 1972 six of us took an Olds station wagon with a camper trailer and an Aeronca Champ. We change crews in the Champ about every 2 hours so our stops were planned that way. It was a fun trip. Everybody needs to go through downtown Chicago pulling a camper trailer in rush hour traffic. The guy that was driving didn't want to pay the tolls for hte bypass around Chi town.

    The driver caught some pretty serious harassment. Just glad it wasn't me.

    Thanks Eric, Im really excited this year to see what improvements there have been. This is year 2 of a 5 year 15million dollar upgrade. They are suppose be be expanding the tarmack for the warbirds to fit more down there to take the pressure off airoshell. Some building where moved and new ones built this year. I may try and go one more day on Saturday as this would also include the night airshow which I have never been to.

    Oh the ways of money :(

    I got to give people credit for any one going to camp at the EAA this year. I must be a muddy mess out there as its been raining almost every day since last week and now they are calling for flooding. Hopfully the sun will come out and dry it up out there.

    The spirit of aviation, check out this video. We have been pounded for the last week with rain. Some of the campers are having to setup temporarly at K-Mart and local schools. This video shows a good idea of the people and there additude towards EAA.
