T-28 Trojans make a pass.

The Aeroshell Aerobatic Team.

Gene Soucy and Teresa Stokes.

We were asked by a magazine photographer to go for a

photo-shoot alongside our friend Mike Thern in his

yellow Fairchild 24 Sunday morning.

Sky snapped this great shot during that shoot.

This was the most exciting part to an otherwise drab and rainy Oshkosh.

Oshkosh-Long Post

Sky and I on our way up to Oshkosh Monday morning. Clear weather and smooth flying.

The view of Oshkosh looking north from the final to 36L.

A panorama of the Vintage West parking/camping area. That's right, it's empty. Why? Maybe it was the weather...but the homebuilts and warbirds made it. Maybe the economy in general or the price of gas? Or maybe it's just the owners of Vintage Aircraft have finally got fed-up with the way they're treated by Vintage and EAA and they no longer attend.
You decide.


The CAF's B-29 "Fifi" attended, its first visit since 1995.

A Corsair takes off runway 18. Several Corsairs were in attendance as part of

the Salute to Naval Aviation.

Always a crowd favorite, a P-51 Mustang lifts off the runway.

A Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, the only one flyable in the world.

Sky tries out Eric Presten's Bleriot.

Sky and a F4F Wildcat.
