Nice photos, Radomir. Thanks for sharing them with us. I sure am glad Mayor Daly didn't send up his storm trooper thugs to take you out of the sky!

I took the same route past Chicago along the lake shore that Radomir did.

Default Great article

Hi Jim,

Great article on your trip to and from Oshkosh. Thanks for taking the time to write it up. I was wondering how things went for you and know we know. It was great camping and seeing you again. Can't wait until next year.

I departed OSH and flew over Lake Michigan at 11,500' in clear skies all the way to Pontiac. What a great flight, 1 hour and 29min. Sorry you live so far from Oshkosh, but it sounds like you had more fun in your RV. We are just both glad to have good friends and great planes.

Ted Gauthier

Another good year Ted. It's a long way over there, but the scenery along the way is pretty impressive so it's a very enjoyable trip. Although I usually hand fly in the bug bumps, auto-pilot seems to be a must for those long cross countries.

Thumbs up AirVenture 2009 photos

Air Venture 2009 photos. 25 lbs of camera gear and a week at OSH can produce some great photos.
