2010 Fly-Ins - Oshkosh !

KOSH:  N43 59 06  W88 33 42


Picture by my good friend Pierre at the site's main entrance.

I went back again !  This time, to avoid weather issues and experience Oshkosh differently, I flew commercially and stayed in a hotel nearby .  Talk about good timing:  the show actually got the moniker Sploshkosh because all the previous week's rains had totally soaked the field !!!  I went with my good friend Pierre and it turned out to be our best Oshkosh yet.
