    Aren't all those glass buildings Continental, Lycoming, Epic, etc only used once or twice a year? Surely if they can afford it EAA with it's massive membership could. I mean look at the massive...

    Add me to the list that wishes the airshow was shorter. We don't need 45 minutes of the same warbirds going back and forth. I don't care about two monoplanes doing the same unrecognizable maneuvers...

    I Agree with this. People are there to have a good time so just let them. One week of poor sleep want kill you. If you canít cope with it perhaps camping isnít for you. Next weíll have people...

    Still Fun but something was missing

    I had a blast at AV21' but I must say it felt lacking in a few areas but better in others. Flyin and camping attendance seemed through the roof! Spectator attendance seemed a little less than past...

    I too had trouble sleeping but that's part of Oshkosh. As long as people are having fun I'll deal with it.

    While it does bug me that special aircraft like war planes get priority handling, it's just the fact of life in aviation. Same goes for flying IFR, if you are flying a Cessna 150 you will be the...

    I don't think another gate would solve anything, there does need to be a crossing guard for the airplanes in hold. If there are aircraft in the hold at Rush lake they should be waived in before any...

    I am always shocked that everything runs so well especially considering that this is the only flight a lot of pilots make all year. That's not to say there weren't a bunch of accidents of airplanes...

    I agree with most that the schedule should be adhered to and it's up to the pilots to adjust for their comfort level. The same should also go for EAA, the airshow is terribly orchestrated and needs...

    I'd wager that the vast majority of these de-registrations are people who just forgot/didn't know/don't care. The other bulk are people who lost interest in flying be it for money or medical and...

    Vehicle traffic was my only real complaint from this year. It's getting ridiculous. Seems the vendors let their pals barrow the golf carts and UTV's to joy ride around. At the night airshow it...

    I too could live without the announcers. Most of what they say is incorrect or fluffed for the crowd. But the airshow isn't really for the pilots, it's for the general public.

    The shower trailers in HBC had hot water every time I showered. One trailer seemed to be better than the other. Overall I am very happy with the shower facilities in camping.

    I thought the food was pretty good this year and pretty fair price considering the venue. My only complaint is how early most of the vendors close. For those of us camping it really limits our...
