Black Thursday up in Oshkosh

Several EAA Staffers were let go today.

More info here:

In my opinion, the organization has completely lost focus. Rod is moving it even further from its "Enthusiast" beginnings towards emphasizing its "business" .

They're totally leaving behind us little guys who love flying and airplanes and are moving towards the high dollar guys who have someone build a kit for them, fly a warbird or have a business that rents space in the display buildings.

I posted a picture of the empty spaces at the front of Vintage Parking this year. That wasn't enough to get their attention.

I'm starting my "Do Not Occupy" Oshkosh movement. Maybe if the guys with showplanes don't show up and half of Camp Scholar is empty they'll start to realize something is wrong.
