“My time in Tailwheel Town” by Stirling Moore

This post by Stirling Moore, one of our two 2015 LadiesLoveTaildraggers Scholarship winners, is a glowing testimonial about her experiences at Tailwheel Town and appreciation for the scholarship. My time in Tailwheel Town by Stirling Moore I flew this morning. It was a gorgeous, bluebird day and I meandered over the county, checking livestock, water, fence lines, and tipping my wings at neighborin... Read More »

Personal Stories from Oshkosh

Personal Stories from Oshkosh

AirVenture 2015 is behind me now but I’m still enjoying OSH by following everyone’s pictures and stories on Twitter and Facebook. I know the big party doesn’t end till this afternoon, July 26, but it appears things are winding down and many have made the trip back home. My feet tell the tale of an OSH filled with sunshine from sunrise to sunset & miles and miles of walking. I... Read More »

OSH 2015 – Thursday

OSH 2015 – Thursday

Thursday at AirVenture my time was nearing an end but no moment was lost. Hope you enjoy these pictures and an OSH slideshow at the end. I’d like to thank Ray Johnson for inviting LadiesLoveTaildraggers to participate in his “Vintage In Review” program, as well as Wendy Lessig, Donna Miller and Jessica Cox for participating. I think they all did a spectacular job showing their ai... Read More »

OSH 2015 – Wednesday

Wednesday at OSH was an AWESOME day! I am having the time of my life meeting incredible people and seeing aircraft I’ve only seen in magazines until now. I want to stop the clock and stay here forever! I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves but must mention a few lady taildragger pilots shown below: Ginger Davidson, Lisa Haag, Bonnie Johnson, & Melissa Abner.     Read More »

OSH 2015 – Tuesday

OSH 2015 – Tuesday

Day 2 @ OSH. Sunny, a little breezy but doable if you flew in today. We met some awesome women tailwheel pilots at our LadiesLoveTaildraggers luncheon. Many of us struggled to get from the south side of the field to the north side for our 12:30 luncheon but you can see by the pictures it all worked out in the end. There’s one overwhelming theme that runs through this group of gals – th... Read More »

OSH 2015 – Monday

OSH 2015 – Monday

Monday, July 20, Opening Day at OSH. I’m thrilled to finally be at the biggest show on earth, not so thrilled with the early morning fog departing MQJ or the wild, hairy arrival into OSH. It all worked but you can bet I had my big girl panties on tight. I’ll save details of the flight-of-four in front of me on base, and that go-around, for a campfire some day and rejoice Kate and I are... Read More »

Countdown to AirVenture

Countdown to AirVenture

I have no idea how many LadiesLoveTaildraggers tshirts it’ll take to make it through a week at AirVenture but I’m coming prepared! Wearing a LadiesLoveTaildraggers tshirt at AirVenture is a great conversation starter and a good way to meet other lady taildragger pilots. If you’d like to purchase one, they’ll be available at our Tues & Friday lunches, 12:30 at the Hilton... Read More »
