    I wish you guys luck, but it seems like you're counting on a LOT of pilots to be paying attention. 9 second interval takeoffs are hard to manage when every 5th (or whatever) pilot dawdles for an extra 5 seconds.

    If 200 Cubs can’t be launched in 30 minutes, so be it. I want fewer slow Cubs on the Fisk approach and more flying in the mass launch now limited to 75 Cubs.

    If Cubs start leaving Hartford at 5:30 A.M. and quit by 6 A.M., they will have a 15 minute cushion plus flight time to all be on the ground before 7 A.M., the Fisk approach start time.

    Here's the question in my mind, where the heck are they parking all these Cubs?

    Yes, if we left from Hartford, Connecticut as was stated in a local paper, the timing for the arrival at Oshkosh might be off a day or two.

    Steveinindy , haven’t you heard of that Sea of Yellow that the EAA has been talking about for months?

    The mid-airs in Florida in March and then again yesterday in Virginia are on my mind.

    Let's all be safe up there!

    1. The Cub Club (Steve Krog) is there.
    2. Cub instruction is given there by Steve Krog and his organization - Cubs on the field !
    3. A grass runway
    4. A short flight to Oshkosh.
    5. Needed a place to gather for the mass flight and the Cub Club (Steve Krog) volunteered Hartford, WI
    6. Cubs may not want to leave for Oshkosh as Hartford is going all out to make our short stay there fantastic!
    7. More information on www.cubs2oshkosh.com

    As there were a lot of Cubs at Sentimental Journey in Lock Haven, Pa, many took to the skies to practice formation flying Cub style for Oshkosh.
