2017-07-22-Oshkosh-EAA-AirVenture: Experimental Aviation Association (EAA), Oshkosh AirVenture 2017 had a few firsts this year: The US NAVY Blue Angels performed at Oshkosh for the first time, and both flying B-29(s), FIFI and Doc flew formation together. I flew my Cessna 206, N9513G, in with Cessnas-2-Oshkosh (C2O), a formation group, so that we can do a mass arrival and camp and party together for the week. Our "element" had Steve and Julie Wolf in their Cessna 182, N8DM, as "Juliet Lead", another Cessna 206, N2712F, carrying James, Christina, and Julianna Andres, was "Juliet Chalk 2" and my 206, N9513G was "Juliet Chalk 3". This year was wetter than most, but the temperatures were in the 80s and 90s, so the entire week was pleasant. I volunteered for "Flight Line Safety", and got to ride a scooter on the flight line for 2 of the daily airshows. July 24-30, 2017, plus travel days.
