Cool, I'll definitely plan on being there. When is the A380 coming to MKE for EAA?

The date I've heard is July 23rd... not for sure on that one yet.

That sounds a little early - EAA official start date is Monday, July 27th. However, it looks like the MKE Lakefront Airshow is coming back from its haitus on the 25th and 26th.

It seems doubtful that the MKE event is of a high enough profile to draw the A380, but the date you mention would at least suggest the possibility.

Don't they usually try to get the exhibit planes such as the 380 in early? People usually start showing up Friday evening at KOSH for the festivities. Thats when the skys over east central Wisconsin become a complete C.F. Wouldn't surprise me if they wanted it to be there when people start arriving.

Looks like winds will be favoring the 19's, so the Layton viewing area will be the place to be.

Any idea what time it's scheduled to arrive?

Hi gang,
If the winds aren't good for 19R, don't forget the roof of the parking structure.
It gives a great view of 7R/25L. It's also perfect for the taxi pics on the way to
the cargo ramp.

Good call!

Quoting Pilotfox (Thread starter):
will park over at Cargo Ramp.

If they park it in the same place as they did the An-225 back in 2004, here's where it will be.

And here's a shot of the 225 parked in that spot:

Just saw it on final for 7R as I was coming home from dinner. It came directly over my house, but I missed it by aboout ten minutes! I guess I'll go down to MKE to watch it depart tomorrow.

I would've gone to watch it come in, but one of my friends had an extra ticket to the Brewers game. I did swing by afterwords though and saw it being unloaded by the YX hanger.


Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

So are you saying that the A380 will be coming into MKE on 7/27, then taking off for the short hop to OSH? And afterward, leaving OSH on the 31st headed to MKE before moving on? What is it going to be doing at MKE? Media tours?

From what I understand... Customs in...... Gas out....... 1/19 at MKE is 9690'..... 18/36 is 8002' at OSH. Thats just my guess...
