OSH: The crowds are arriving.

AirVenture officially begins tomorrow and that means right now this place is crawling with pilots, vendors, volunteers and families. We ran across this camping family who has attended OSH for over 30 years, just like so many of us. I don’t have the badges and buttons to prove I was here, but believe me, I’m not a newbie. This is one week of fun and excitement I always look forward to! ... Read More »
