    I agree with you. Oshkosh brings in an amazing and unreal cross section of fantastic WWII Warbirds and from my perspective, it’s excellent every year. But that’s my perspective and not the...

    I have no idea- that’s why I asked this question in the first place.
  3. The position and explanation provided by the EAA...

    The position and explanation provided by the EAA and the CAF on this issue are conflicting. Thatís why I was asking for clarification on it. Iíve reached out to both organizations now and the...

    1) I don’t need a history lesson on the 8th Air Force in Europe. My Grandpa flew with the 8th and I’m well aware of their amazing achievements.

    2) This is all about putting our kids first by...

    Did I say that the EAA has a Fiduciary Responsibility to the CAF? I’m pretty sure I don’t remember saying that. I don’t remember saying that because I never said it. I said we have a Fiduciary...

    My objective is to have both B-29’s at Oshkosh. We have a fiduciary responsibility to our kids to educate them on our history. Airventure brings history alive for our kids so they’re actually...
  7. Again Kyle- as I’ve already stated- Appleton is...

    Again Kyle- as I’ve already stated- Appleton is the location that rides are staged from. Not Oshkosh. No one is contending that the CAF or anyone else should be giving rides from Wittman Field. That...

    I’m not suggesting that they should necessarily. But some kind of reasonable arrangement needs to be worked out so we don’t go years without the B-29’s at Oshkosh. It’s all about working together so...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y11JzXJdP4E Here’s the video Hal. Clearly we have to do everything we can to resolve this. Obviously Oshkosh is where Fifi, Doc, Diamond Lil, Witchcraft (when she...

    Thanks for the clarification on it Hal. I appreciate it. We have to be doing everything possible to ensure that Fifi and Doc are back flying together at Oshkosh next year. With each passing day, the...

    Yea that’s too bad Ron. I think you’re right on the current political and Covid environment- common decency and overall respectful interactions seem to have gone by the wayside. Sad to see that carry...

    Hi Ron- Can you elaborate a little more on what exactly happened here? We didn’t go this year but wow! This sounds crazy! Why did this happen? Was it because EAA has shut down many of the parking...

    Iím just looking for some clarification from EAA on what the actual policy is so we can know what the facts are. If itís true that theyíre not allowing the Warbird Organizations to charge for rides...

    You hit it on the head Kyle with the rides being staged from Appleton. In years past, that’s exactly where the B-29’s have staged from. But from the video I watched, apparently EAA is not allowing...
  18. Why doesnít EAA allow Fifi and other Warbirds to Charge for rides?

    Hey Sam- I just watched a video explaining why Fifi didnít come to Oshkosh this year. It essentially said that since EAA doesnít allow Fifi to charge for rides and experience flights, they canít...
