    I would love to see Adele play Oshkosh but I think she's done touring so probably not going to happen but she has awesome music. Maybe the Killers would be good. They're out of Las Vegas and have some awesome music too.

    You're a good son Mark! I hope my kids will haul me to airshows when I'm 79, although the goal is to attend by flying in - at least till I join the flying octogenarians!

    I don't understand the fascination with bottled water. Most of it is tap water, packaged in a plastic bottle. It is the same product you get from the free stations all around the grounds at Oshkosh. Why not bring your own bottle and fill it with tapwater?

    It’s impossible to know whether the same dollars Ford gave to EAA were later paid to the band. I assume sponsorships go into the same checking account where admissions, camping fees, exhibitor fees, etc., are deposited and out of which various AirVenture expenses are paid.

    Unless you happen to know, just because someone is credited as a “sponsor” does not mean they paid the entire cost. Even if so, it doesn’t mean EAA couldn’t have gotten Ford to sponsor something else instead of the concert. So at least it cost EAA the opportunity to get something else sponsored.

    It's possible that any of these scenarios could occur. But sponsorships usually don't happen in these manners because the sponsor wants proof that their money went to what they obligated themselves to do contractually. That requires financial control accounting procedures to be properly in place with supporting documentation provided to the sponsor.

    Another scenario could be a contractual request by EAA for Ford to pay the band directly.

    If they aren't currently playing the funnel cake and elephant ear circuit, I would count them out at airventure.
