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
'09 Buell XB12XT, TL1000S, H1F, M620, CR250R, KX100, XR650R, Cota 315R
