I'd like too, but I haven't been there since 2005, when I was given the chance to fly the aircraft for which my username was based (there is a story behind that).

If I don't go, do me (us) a favor: give us a thread loaded with photos of the 2007 AirVenture  bigthumbsup

Im not gonna make it this year. (I did Sun n Fun this year though, that was a blast)

Next year I hope to be there as a controller (the guys in the pink shirts). The FAA sends a bunch of us up there for the show to work. (Its awesome, they fly us there, they give us a place to stay...AND we get paid Big grin )

See ya there in '08!

I'm there every year, and have been since I was 3. The days I go depends on the airshow schedule, my work schedule, and if I volunteer for Aeroscholars.

So, is Oshkosh sort of a runner up prize? Hell, when I was in the Air Cadets all they did was send us down to Montana for a weekend ....  Big grin

Anyway, I've never been to Oshkosh and won't be going this year sadly.

Good times! I wish I could go every year, I just don't have the time/resources.

Ive wanted to go the past two years but I always find out a day before and its to late to make any trip decisions. I may go this year if it doesn't interfere with football.

Malstrom AFB in Great Falls. Got to go in a missile silo and sit in an F-16 and F-101. Lot's of fun, especially when we ransacked the barracks at CFB Calgary on one of our overnights. We had to do 3 hours of drill the next morning as a result, before breakfast .....  grumpy

The best "day" hmmm... As far as I am concerned there is WAY to much to see to see it in one day. Try at least 3 days. At the very least.

This is the first year I am going to be helping with line service. I can't wait to do some directing there. I do some here at work, but no where near the amount of traffic as we do here at GWB. I can't wait till July 27th!
