Airventure

…opens today! Many aircraft have already flown in over the weekend. Most every type of general aviation aircraft, both past and present will be there along with some military a/c. Up to 10,000 planes. I’ll be there along with 500,000 aviation fans.  It’ll be interesting to see how an Airbus A380 takes off from a 6,700 foot runway on a hot summers day.

To see live action camera feed of aircraft arriving check out this link.  For this week, Oshkosh has the distinction of the busiest control tower in the world. To manage the non stop activity, there is a 32 page NOTAM to guide the pilots.

I’ll post photos later this week. General Aviation’s biggest event!
