2010 Warbirds: Oshkosh !

KOSH:  N43 59 06  W88 33 42

After a long wait, I finally came back to Oshkosh, the magnificient.  The week started wet as you can see above but ended really nice and dry.  I was not disapointed the warbirds were there in force again this year.  Here are pictures of some of the awesome warbirds I saw there.  As always, so many planes, so little time...
