“Nice landing, Cherokee. Welcome to Oshkosh.”
Oh yeah, sweet music to my ears. There simply is no other place I would rather be this week than on the grounds at Whittman Regional Airport for the 2011 EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in Wisconsin. This place has been refered to as Mecca for pilots. I just call it magic.
This week we will be teaming up with Damon Favor of The Pursuit of Wings podcast to bring you daily video updates from the grounds here at #OSH11. As always, I want to bring you along for the ride when I do awesome aviation-y stuff. So be sure to check back every day this week for the latest yummy goodness!
This episode was recorded on Sunday, July 24th, before the actual opening of the show. Lets just call it Day Zero. Damon and I walked the grounds to get as much footage as we could in spite of all the heavy-lifting and work that was going on in the background. We also made it over to Ardy & Ed’s, a 50’s-style drive-in restaraunt for a small gathering of flying cars. There were two Aerocars and a handful of Maverick Flying Cars. We were able to talk with Jeremy Pyhala about the Maverick.
For the rest of the week, be sure to check out our segments for 100 Years of Naval Aviation, Youth Aviation Spotlight, the myTransponder Photo of the Day, and a Viewer’s Choice. In fact, if there is something that you would like to see highlighted on the show, hop on over to our Facebook page and leave us a comment. We’d love to hear from you.
See you tomorrow!
