Oshkosh - The Show

Oshkosh - The Show

Postby JohnH on Sun 22 Oct 2017, 9:25 am

In July this year, I had two days at this show. Everything can be seen here from vintage to modern, strange to normal. My interest here at the show revolves around the vintage and warbirds. This year the shows highlights were centred around the B.25 gathering and the first time in recent years that two airworthy B.29s were seen together. There are far too many photos to show here, but after yet another struggle with Photobucket, below is a sampling. The rest can be found at:

With all the photos I took, it was hard to pick a selection for here. I hope there is something that interests everyone.

Blimey, lucky you! :worship: Thinking of going to Oshkosh next year for one last time, I was last there in 2013.

Looks like 'Chuckie' has become 'Madras Maiden', think she look better in the new markings.

@Alex C, thanks it was special, we did 3 ship, low level at Appleton then Aero's on the way back to Oshkosh. Booked for next year, got a good rate with the airfare so hoping that Collings will bring their P51C model "Lee's Hope"........ :)

Has she got new markings, last time I saw her she was 'Betty Jane'?

Sorry Alex, got it wrong, Betty Jane still alive's. This Aircraft is a new P51C restoration out of AirCorps Aviation. Its titled Lope's Hope III, highly polished but with a very dark gray/ black tail. Owned by Texas Flying Legends, so if they are going to be at OSH next year its a fair bet this will be there and in the running for awards. I'm uk based so let me know if you are heading out that way. BTW here's the latest link
