    My busy home Class D airport is used to flights of 2, 3 or 4 aircraft, always RVs, requesting a formation arrival, as in an initial approach with a right or left break as directed by the tower. Traffic permitting, of course. No waiver required.

    In 1999 we took 99 Cessna 120/140s into Wittman, not during AirVenture, no problem. Tower cleared us to land 36 and told us left traffic and find a hole if we had to go around. Parked on what was then the west ramp then lined up, took off on 36, turned left and took the 30 second flight over to Pioneer. Tower used 9/27 for other traffic. No need for any waivers.

    According to plans I made back in January, I'd be arriving and setting up camp right about now. The forecast looks good enough, a little wet (when isn't it?), and not a swelter in sight. Oh well, next year.

    Have the hotels backed off on their prices since A/V is not happening?

    I think the rooms have been running me around $145 the past few years after the show was over.

    I'm headed to OSH tomorrow morning in the motorhome. We'll be staying at Sleepy Hollow Farm.
