My first trip to OSHKOSH for the annual Airventure 2006, via 2-ship T-38 formation!

Here we are about 1 mile South of Rwy-36 coming up Initial at 350kts! There were aeroplanes and ultralights everywhere!!!

Wow! What a place - what an airshow - what a Fly-in!!! I felt like it was a fly-in, Disneyland, and a Fair all wrapped up into one big show. The only problem was the heat and humidity was, at times, oppressive! Thunderstorms, Tornadoes? Heat, Humidity, feet hurting, et-al... It was still an impressive show (to this neophite!). We even had an opportunity to meet and party with the VP & CEO of Virgin Galactic who is poised to create "Space Ship 2" for commercial, civil space flight. There may even be an opportunity to work with them as one of their pilots in the future? Only time will tell. Also met Burt Rutan, Mike & Sally Melville, Harrison Ford and a bunch of really nice folks up in Wisconsin. The Bratwurst & Cheese were great!!! I can't wait to go back to OSH again...hopefully next year? Thanks Jeff, Zonni, Yoda, Edsel, Joe, and all the Aeroshell square folks & volunteers!

Unfortunately, there were a total of 7 deaths related to getting to OSH and leaving OSH. There were 5 fatalities in 3 different crashes trying to get to OSH. One fatality during a taxi accident between an RV-6 and a TBM Avenger, and one engine failure resulting in a ditching into Lake Michigan by a American Ledgend Cub - truly unfortunate.
