It's Oshkosh time again! The trusty Vans RV-8 brought us from Alabama in about 4 flying hours. Even found cheap fuel ($3.64) and a free hot dog in northern Indiana, followed by a pass up the Chicago FLY corridor, along the Lake Michigan shoreline.
The infamous Rippon Approach went well, right up to when we were sent back to the beginning--the controllers needed room for three twins who dropped down from the 2300' inbound path. No problem--practice makes perfect, and we came to fly, examine, and report about airplanes. Be sure to join the Kitplanes staff right here, every day, for the latest reports.
