Default Oshkosh Arrival Early

EAA needs to install a jumbotron at each end of Runway 9 & 27. They could then auction off the right to control it for 30 minutes or 1 hour intervals. The operator could then grade the landings of the airplanes coming in. When your 30 minutes or 1 hour was up, another operator takes over the grading process. It would be fun for the people watching. Some of the people landing might not consider it as much fun.

Default Early Arrival

Ok now....

For Joker and the likes: If you had read my post correctly instead of getting your cajones in a knot you will have notice that I mentioned the D%?&m Notam which means that I read the D?&*m Notam ....all I was asking was a simple question of any potential procedures other then a standard arrival which I can get from 50nm out listing to the ATIS..

So MR. Curmudgeon...if you don't like what someone is asking or posting then just don't read the darn post.

I'm sick of the d%?&m forum police ....there are moderators for that purpose..

I'm off my soapbox now..

Hey, just a reminder that there is a brand new procedure in the NOTAM for diversion to Fond du Lac if OSH is closed, presumably to avoid the holding cluster that happened last year the Sunday before the show... It's a miracle nobody collided or ran out of gas.

My favorite all-time thing to do is sit by the runway on Sunday with the handheld radio and watch arrivals. The only decision to make is, which runway??

You all have fun... I wish I was flying the VFR arrival again this year, but I'll be in the back of the company airplane with my face glued to the window. See you there!

On the face page of the NOTAM a black box has this note in large letters.

"Special Flight Procedures effective 6 AM CDT July 19 to Noon CDT July 29, 2019"

I would interpret this as meaning the NOTAM is not in effect outside of that time block.

Bill

Please read this again''any potential procedures other then a standard''

I've read the Notam multiple times already ....It was just an honest question just in case there was something I may have missed..

Some here might need to schill out a little.

Marshall, thank you for the civilised answer, greatly appreciated.

Jerry, time permitting or weather to get there in the first place, I will lay a hand, thanks for all the work you guys do on our behalf.

Talking Breakfast

Someone mentioned breakfast. My favorite breakfast spot is La Sure?s Cafe and Bakery, 1570 Ripon Lane. Yes it?s a long trek from HBC but at 6:00 am it?s worth the walk. Apparently a lot of other folks think so, too, because if you get there after 7:00, you?ll have to wait in line.

If you have never done the RIPON arrival you should still read and digest the NOTAM (25 pages have updates since 2018).

Just in case you get delayed into Friday or later.
