The following morning I rode on to Oshkosh!

There were all manner of aircraft.

Manufactures showing off their new tundra planes


A classic Pitts Bip


A float-plane



An arctic expedition plane (might need them to drop fuel for me when I go for my overland motorcycle Antarctic recordevious).


There were planes that seemed too small to lift a single person (I've since learned that this particular plane was flown all the way from France to Oshkosh years ago, but that this year its owner/pilot had to work at Airventure, flying something slightly larger so this wee plane made the trip in the cargo hold of the owner's "other" plane - the A380).


And aircraft large enough to stand in for a crane


There were old bombers


And the Ford P51 display
