It’s opening day here at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011, and we decided to start out in the vintage aircraft area.
While in the vintage aircraft area, we were able to talk to Skip Reed about his gorgeous green Beechcraft Staggerwing. Then we made our way over to Conoco Phillips Plaza (formerly Aeroshell Square) where Damon Favor of The Pursuit of Wings podcast talked with LTJG Kobbs about a Navy variant of the H-60.
For our Youth Organization Spotlight, we talked with Lyn Freeman of BuildAPlane.
Later on in the evening, we had Bill Williams of the Pilotcast and Rich Thurmanm, his copilot, talk about a funnel cloud they spotted on the FISKE arrival. For that photo, Rich was the winner of the myTransponder Photo of the Day. Besides the bragging rights, Bill and Rich also won a Crazed Pilot (affiliate link) headset-friendly baseball cap.
Finally, we wrap up with Steve Visscher and Grant McHerron of the Plane Crazy Down Under podcast on our Other People’s Podcasts segment.
Stay tuned for Day 2 of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Thanks for watching!
