Just a constructive note about the flagmen at OSH this year......
We really need to teach the flagmen proper marshaling signals to avoid confusion.
The signals the flagmen give to move aircraft are NOT related to the flagman's position to the aircraft. I am seeing flagmen standing forward and to one side of the aircraft motioning with BOTH hands to move forward. (arms extended up and back of the hand facing the pilot, motioning back and forth. This signal is for the aircraft to move STRAIGHT forward, irrespective of the marshaller's position. Note the "move ahead" signal in the attached PDF.
Often the marshaller means "come toward me" with the above. Instead he should be turning the aircraft using the signal in the "turn left" or "turn right" box of the PDF.
This became VERY confusing when approach the intersection of two grass taxi paths, with other turn options and close to runway 27. The marshaller was signaling us to go straight thru an obstruction and we just had to stop, tying up traffic until it was clear as to his intentions. His intentions were to have us move over to an adjacent taxi path, closer to the runway.
Anyone else have issues?
