    Big Grin Oshkosh 2018 Arrival and Departures - Videos

    Hi All,

    We made it to Oshkosh for the first time this year, having managed to find someone to rent a plane to two guys from England for the week.

    For those interested, I filmed the arrival which was pretty smooth up until the point the taildragger ahead of us decided to start a ground loop, thankfully he caught it and we both emerged unscathed.



    Also filmed the departure which was, again, pretty straightforward.



    Really enjoyable 4 days at Oshkosh this year, something every pilot needs to do at least one time (and definitely more!), no doubt we'll back again.

    Hope you enjoy!

    Thanks Bob, appreciate it. It was certainly a little tense, having had to wait the Saturday and Sunday 'cause of the weather we'd resigned ourself to going to Fond Du Lac.

    However when we checked the ATIS en-route and Oshkosh was still accepting people for camping we decided to give it a go, so a mixture of excitement and tension in those final 5 minutes on the realisation we'd got very lucky with the timing.
