Oshkosh 2010 Report

Sky and I left home at 5:45 Friday morning for Spl'oshkosh.

Andy Parks and Andrew King discuss flying the Fokker's.

Beginning of the nighttime airshow. This was wonderful and they're planning on doing it next year.

Made friends with the cast of "Pearl" the movie. It's the story of a 13-year old Oklahoma girl who got her pilots license becoming the youngest licensed pilot in the US. We also met the songwriter for the music in the movie, including "Just one Dream". Incredibly nice people, they all loved the flying. David Mars, Ted Davis and Clay Adams did the flying for the movie.
Look up Pearl on facebook.

"You gettin' this camera guy. Order in the next ten minutes, and we'll send you an additional mini-shamwow!

The North Dakota Zero. It has an R-2800 engine and is built-up from three Zeros.

Matt Younkin does a routine in his Beech 18.

SNJ peel-off during the Warbird show. Not many warbirds there on the last weekend.

Chuck Greenhill's Mustang.

Wildcat dives out of the clouds Sunday afternoon.
