Each year at AirVenture, the team looks forward to enjoying some meals at Ardy & Ed’s Drive-In. This short video was shot and edited entirely on my iPhone 6. The graphics and credits were made separately, then imported into my phone so I can cut and edit it all together.

This video was shot as an example of a small story. We are calling on all of you to make a small OSHstory and send it to us. Then we will showcase all of them at our party on Friday night at 7pm. Details on how to participate and how to get to Camp Bacon are available at our new website OSHstories.com.

We can’t wait to see EAA AirVenture Oshkosh through your eyes!

We took a couple of minutes at EAA Airventure Oshkosh to talk with Jeff Simon of SocialFlight.com about SocialFlight’s newest feature: Hotspots.

SocialFlight is already the destination for sharing and finding aviation events, but Hotspots now expands on that with destinations to visit and aerial tours. You can now look up places to visit near airports or procedures for touring an area like Niagara Falls, and SocialFlight makes this easy to find and provides great descriptions, pictures, and user feedback on the destination.

Check out SocialFlight on your favorite smartphone app store or online at SocialFlight.com.

The Other People’s Airplanes crew have arrived at #OSH15 and this year we wanted to try something a little different.

We are putting out a Call to Action to get YOU, our viewers, to submit your own Small Stories. A small story is a short video under two minutes that tells a simple story with a beginning, middle, and end.

We want you to create your own video and send it to us, either by sharing the link or you can upload to our site. You can submit your video at our new page, http://OSHStories.com.

For tips and other information checkout http://OSHStories.com as well as http://www.izzyvideo.com/small-stories-manifesto/ for the inspiration behind the idea.

Don’t forget, we are yet again streaming OSHBASH live on Tuesday, July 21. See http://oshbash.com for information about the event and checkout http://OtherPeoplesAirplanes.com/oshbash for the lifestream.

Tora! Tora! Tora!

“Tora! Tora! Tora!” is the Commemorative Air Force’s recreation of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that signaled the beginning of the American involvement in World War II.

Designed as a living history lesson, the intent of the Tora group is to help generations of individuals throughout the world born after World War II understand that war does not discriminate in the pain it causes and that courageous individuals on both sides lose their lives.

During EAA Airventure 2013 at Oshkosh, WI, Other People’s Airplanes had an exclusive opportunity to talk to the members of the Tora, Tora, Tora Team. They allowed us to mount GoPros in and on their aircraft, work with their pyro team during the performance, and cameras stationed across different parts of the airfield. More than a dozen cameras, filming across two days, over a year of editing and the tireless hard work of the entire OPA team resulted in this special feature. We hope you appreciate this tribute to “Tora! Tora! Tora!”.

Wing walker. Aviation and Space Artist. Classic car collector. Musician. There’s almost nothing Teresa can’t do. We got a chance to ask her about all her hobbies and wing walking for Gene Soucy at EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2014.

We chatted with Rob Reider for quite a while at EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2014. We talked about everything from how he got into airshow announcing and Sporty’s instruction series, to what he takes to airshows and how he handles when the unexpected happens.

See the Sonex Aircraft SubSonex JSX-2 jet fly at Oshkosh 2014. With 4 cameras in the aircraft when it flew in the Tuesday airshow, you can see this incredible hombuilt up close and personal.

The SubSonex JSX-2 is the second generation SubSonex prototype that has many new and exciting improvements over the original JSX-1. The JSX-2 now has fully retractable gear, a larger fuel tank, a larger cockpit, and much more.

Find out more about the SubSonex and the available pricing and options over at the Sonex website, http://www.sonexaircraft.com/subsonex.

We got a chance to talk with Aerobatic Champion Patty Wagstaff at EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2014. She talked about everything from her new school in St. Augustine to what’s next in her career.

Her new flight school is the Patty Wagstaff Aerobatic School in St. Augustine, FL. Her and her team of instructors do aerobatic lessons in a Super Decathlon and an Extra 300L, to ease pilots into not only flying aerobatics, but learning how to use the entire flight envelope to be a safer and better pilots.

She is also working on a new Finishing School course where pilots who need to do a flight review, haven’t flown in a while, or just want to brush up, can take the course and get some of those bad habits out of their flying. Skills like keeping the ball centered on climb out or not slipping in turns will be worked on and perfected through the course.

Patty said that she is always looking for the next cool airplane to fly so we asked her to name a few. Her list includes:
* Grumman Bearcat
* Grumman Tigercat
* North American F-86 Sabre

Find out more about Patty and her school on her website, http://pattywagstaff.com. The Instruction link on the side has information and pricing at her new school.
