    Derecho is widespread. Dust devil or mini tornado will destroy a house and next door nothing.

    A small airplane blown into a hangar does not usually damage a hangar significantly enough to cause collapse. The wind (local whirlwind ?) must have been a significant factor in the hangar(s)...

    Cops pulled me over while carefully trying to get through Sturgis on the way home from Oshkosh. I wasn't speeding, he said I failed to yield to the left lane for emergency vehicles on the shoulder....

    That appears to be total tower operations. Fond du lac is almost as busy (173 day).

    Airnav has FAA operations numbers. An operation is a single landing or takeoff.
    KOSH has 209 per day average. In comparison Arlington has 366 per day with no tower....

    I doubt KOSH has enough operations to warrant a tower. The effect is that a Basic Sport Pilot or ultralight pilot can't base at the airport, home of EAA (former promoter of Sport Pilot).

    I thought 30 years old was called antique by EAA. That was back in 1976 when my restored 1946 Chief was 30 years old.
    And I thought there was also a category called classic for the 1955 C-170 etc.

    Has that date updated each decade or something as planes get older and fewer? I have a 1981.

    When I drive from the west coast to Oshkosh I normally see on average only about two airplanes. Most often agplanes.

    Last time I checked, the Milwaukee Democrat convention was moved from mid July to August 18.

    Seems to be under control now. But might get a second wave around July.

    The last pandemic was two years, 2009-2010. Gathering 650,000 from around the world might be a concern to the locals.
    I would vote for a bigger event in 2021 but with distancing rules if possible.

    That lack of transportation between Oshkosh and Milwaukee is why EAA should look at some options for the Airventure week.
    I wasted untold hours researching and finding a new bus service in 2019. I...

    That's why flying direct to Mikwaukee is the cheapest, fastest and best option for me from Seattle, and maybe most of the country.
    It's too bad EAA doesn't help much (or any) promote transportation...

    I don't think many can find a direct airline flight to Appleton. It usually takes an extra connection to Appleton (sometimes 4 hour wait) and many more hours to actually get to Airventure.

    Yeah, I think access gates is 24hrs if you have a wristband to show the gate volunteer. Access gates are everywhere but wristbands are not available at these locations.

    Airline to Milwaukee is much cheaper. Too bad there is no frequent bus service to Oshkosh during Airventure week.
    The Lamers morning only bus service is rather useless.

    Then I think EAA needs to bypass the FAA and go to a higher level, like Senator Inhofe, the President and others.
    It's supposed to be "We The People", not "We The Governed". You have my permission.

    If you have a wristband for several days or the weekly wristband then walk past the ticket office and enter at 5am or whatever.
    The action starts early.
