Hey All....

Having a Long Island Ice Tea while the grill warms up. Oshkosh a ****load of rain and they are not allowing planes to park in the grass here. That is a problem when 10,000 planes come in. They are diverting them to fondulac, appleton etc.

The campground is very wet, and they are parking heavier campers etc along the roads and have opened a strip mall lot for them to park in.

More rain coming tonight. Then should be good....

Any TMC folk here???

I will post pics.....

Things are a bit drier now. Sun and wind helped a lot. They are hoping to get more aircraft parked tomorrow and Monday. They may even postpone the airshow a few hours on monday to get more planes in and parked.

All in all, things are good. Blue cheese crusted ribeyes, baked potatoes, and merlot for dinner, could be worse

My dad was there a few years ago in a Stearman. Never been, but I wanna go to Oshkosh. Love tube-and-fabric airplanes. You can keep your Spam Cans!

Bummer! I'd be pissed if I was flying into Oshkosh and got diverted to another airport. I'd probably turn around fly back home.

Are they letting people park on the grass yet?

Just heard from someone that saw it that Jack Roush's Beech Premier crashed on landing just before 7pm central at Oshkosh. Apparently 2 people were on board and both got out with "minor injuries". Not sure if Jack was one of them or not.

Landing on runway 18. There was a piper cub talking off and I guess the jet decided to go around, wing dipped and down she went. Jack Roush and another person were in the jet. Both were taken to the hospital, should be ok.

That's the second plane he's cracked up according to yahoo. Shouldn't he give up flying? Seems that a being a pilot isn't his cup of tea. You only get to wreck so many planes before you kick off. Maybe he should get his bus driver license or something.

Perhaps just "Scott" wasn't available when I signed up.... TX, don't tell anyone else about my card. I don't want anyone on the internet to know. :D

Was it not enough to just be "Bob", "Robert" or "Bobby"??? Was the Hoosier necessary?
