It’s day five here at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011, and today we bring you back to Conoco Phillips Plaza!
Boeing made a big entrance this morning with the arrival of the 787 Dreamliner. We got to take a short tour of the new widebody jetliner, and talked with Lori Gunter, Senior Manager of Communications for the 787 Program about some of the sweet innovations Boeing is designing into the jet. Then we made our way to the cockpit for a very short chat with Michael Sinnett, Chief Engineer for the 787 Program. Michael told us a little bit about what it is like to fly the Dreamliner.
Continuing in Conoco Phillips Plaza (formerly Aeroshell Square), Damon Favor of The Pursuit of Wings podcast talked with Major Dan Butler, USMC. Major Butler is a pilot and flight instructor in Pensacola, FL. He gives us some insight into the T-6B Texan II.
We wrap up this episode with a short chat with Rob Riggen of Flying High Coffee. Rob knows that pilots are going to drink coffee, so why shouldn’t they drink great coffee. And the best part is Flying High Coffee channels some of the profits back into aviation youth and outreach programs.
