Jaba, Beach and others are off to Oshkosh.
May there be lots of photos.
Say, Spartan Execs, C195's, Globe swifts and others in that vein.
Have fun, boys.

Mrs Beach is clearly a woman of good taste ......does not explain why she is married to the man in my reception lounge right now ppruning on his iPhone when there are proper PC connections aplenty!

Beach Nerd might be his new name!

185.....Plenty of pics will follow!

Maybe even some with nosewheels instead of arsewheels.

Peter F,
how about some Meyers 200's, Bellanca Vikings, and some Navions?
All Nosewheel classics IMHO.

Oshkosh........ one day!

I'll keep an eye on them and make sure they don't spend too much cash!

It's only an 11 hour drive for me, but for some reason I've never been able to get enthusiastic enough to go.

I'd return to the Reno Air Races at the drop of a hat however.

Some competition for the Dr:

Sorry, can't link directly.

Airstrip Explorer

Type 'Hidden Splendor' into the search box
Then select the 'video' tab when you get there.

Another interesting one is 'Half Moon Bar'

FTDK - love your posts. Being a desk jockey these days it's great to have some contact with the real world.
Seems you landed downwind in the last post if you can believe the sock. Can you recall the wind speed at the time or was it too light to matter?
Cheers

Oh dear! Too many observant people in here with too much time on their hands. Several have pointed out my shortcomings - in private.

Yes, I did land downwind. I had a very good reason for doing so, which I can't go into here.

The wind was not such that it was an issue on that strip - which I have been landing on for 30+ years.

Dr

PS: Looked it up in ERSA did you 185SW? Heard anything from the Sloshkosh crew?

No Doc, I have been past it from that angle a bit further out.
Whilst i haven't landed there, I do recognise the hangar/building layout.
I haven't heard from the airbums.

The Oshkosh "crew" haven't arrived yet, should be there 4pm local time tomorrow (Monday) just in time for the "Chicago" concert (those old enough would know who they are).

My crew went via NZ, WAY TOO FAR via NZ to LAX, don't do it!

Am yet to spot an A380 at LAX they seem to be few and far between.
