    I have not heard of an airplane called a "Mouseketeer" . Is it by Disney? Long way from France at 105 knots. Good luck and safe flying.

    Do you have your route planned out? I think it would be fun to check it out and maybe be able to track once you get airborne.

    C'mon Bill, you of all people should know what he was saying by anglisizing his French language for BEECHCRAFT MUSKETEER.

    EDIT: Or perhaps not. Much more likely, given the posters country of France, a Jodel Mousquetaire

    Hi Peter,
    There are usually a few flying themselves across (I presume that is what you meant) and many, many more coming commercially.

    I don't know of any specifically, but there will be a few partaking in the Greenland Air Trophy who will probably be continuing to Oshkosh.

    The Jodel D140 coming from France reminds me of one Oshkosh in the 90s where I saw a group of DR250 Jodels arrive from France and Germany having crossed through Iceland and Greenland.
