2018-07-23-Oshkosh-EAA-AirVenture: Oshkosh AirVenture 2018 was again a joy! Lots of fun, learning, a little rain, arrival with Cessnas-2-Oshkosh (C2O) and Redbird Simulators and the Redbird Xwind SE Simulator. The mass arrivals, C2O, Bonanzas, Mooneys, et.al. arrive on Saturday before the show and while we watched the weather moving in, the organizers suggested that we arrive for C2O a few days early to ensure we are checked in for our mass arrival. We had over 115 airplane registered for C2O, but only about 88 were checked in for the arrival. AirVenture 2018: 07/23/18-07/19/18.
