No. FAA unable to handle. As per events occurring Thursday evening, seen here in camp looking at the traffic pattern and listening on LiveATC. This was *not* a difficult evening... And a buddy of mine trying to reposition from a remote airport to Oshkosh tonight got sent back to the remote airport for no good reason. Gets to sleep somewhere in the fbo tonight. Not in his tent already at Oshkosh.

I got turned away a few years back, wound up going into APE and renting a car. Cancelled my trip this year, didn't want to fly 4 hours and no HBC. Never had a problem at SnF.

Tier 1 and tier 2 ground stop?

What the heck does that mean?

I did a search of the Notam and got zero hits.....

EAA, please don’t use terms where we have no idea what they mean!

We heard that an incoming C5A had a brake lock up and catch fire on 36 this evening, and everything was shut down while they were trying to clean it up. The STOL competition was on hold at 2000 lcl....

Been flying 37-years. Been taking my RV-6 to OSH AirVenture since 1998. When you find out, what the Tier 1 and Tier 2 ground stops are, I would love to learn what that means.

This FAA link will show the Tier system, click on "Tier Info" on the left side and then click on the ZAU sector (Oshkosh in this sector) and the 1st and 2nd tiers will be highlighted.
https://www.fly.faa.gov/ois/

I believe this will only effect IFR traffic as the VFR traffic is not likely in the “system"

Everything above is correct.
