    The bus cycles about every 30-40 minutes. It only runs in the morning (or at least that was last year's schedule).

    Kobussen will also take you to Target or the grocery store in a van for $25 and...

    Sure they have. When my RV-6 was brand new in 2001, a guy was willing to write me a check on the spot and buy it at a really good (for me) price. There are people who go to the show every year with...

    The Kobussen folks run buses and vans to the grocery stores. The bus is free. If you want to hire a van, that costs $$.

    Uber is also an option.

    I rode on Aluminum Overcast 15+ years ago. I really enjoyed it. The view from the nose was outstanding, the others were great too, and the airplane wasn't nearly as noisy on the inside as I expected.

    I'm counting the days too. I brought home some items (tool kit, tie-downs, and folding chairs) to weigh for the trip, and weighed them last night. Took 'em back to the airport today.

    Thanks, Gary.

    The problem is, unless you watched the webcast or follow this thread or a similar one on VAF, there is no way to know this info.

    It is a month before the Airventure arrival procedure kicks off. EAA needs to get on the ball and publish:

    1) The schedule for mass arrivals.

    2) Whatever information is necessary to engage the...

    My wife works on the marketing side at Coke. Basically, events like Airventure sell drink rights based on which major soft drink company offers the best financial incentive. It is all about the...

    There is a second "mustang" in the background. No wonder we won the battle - using 1944/45 weapons in 1942 is an unfair advantage.

    EAA does not like to play Barney Fife and doesn't hire enough security personnel to enforce the "good neighbor" rules. They do very little to enforce rules other than the ones which directly...

    I would also suggest that the rise in mechanical failures is because operators are extremely vigilant in the Phase 1 flight test period. Cowls are removed frequently, jam nuts checked, etc. After 40...

    I'd speak with the shop owner and go from there based on what he says and does.

    That said, I'd have a hard time going back to a mechanic who went off the deep end on me.

    Opinion - well managed mass arrivals that take place on schedule are a good way to efficiently bring in aircraft. As far as popularity, there seem to be more of them as the years go by.

    It truly was spectacular both years, for very different reasons.

    In 2017, its run on the powered parachutes was impressive, and in 2018, the circling afterburner climb was amazing.

    The plan is always to launch from Atlanta at dawn on Saturday, fly to the Chicago area (often Aurora), take on fuel, empty bladders, and press on to Oshkosh. In theory, it should take 4.5-5 hours. ...
