Airventure 2016: Day 2

Oshkosh on Sunday

By Michael Stephan

Sunday at Airventure is a free day, in more ways than one. First, it requires a ticket that is also used for Monday, and since most of the vendors are still setting up for the start of the show on Monday, they are not open on Sunday. So, you are free to roam the flight line looking at airplanes and watching new arrivals stream in.

I have several friends that are attending the show this year, so on Sunday I found their planes/campsites, sat in the grass and visited with them for most of the afternoon. Luckily they has spots near the taxiway and we watch the streaming aircraft land and taxi. More than once our conversation was stopped with, “Wow, did you see that one.”

It was hot and humid that afternoon and it took several glasses of water to stay hydrated. Staying in the shade of the airplane was a relief from the heat.

Other than a few pictures of the early arrivals, I didn’t get much accomplished, but it was quite a relaxing afternoon with friends.

This Skyote was excellent, and is now also offered as a kit.

This Murphy Moose on floats has a James Bond theme. It was called Moosey Galore.
