I think the Oshkosh arrival is just pure luck. Last year I didn't see a single plane from Ripon to touchdown. This year planes were all over the place, especially after I got turned back. Arrival about the same time on the same day... go figure. Just luck of the draw as to how many planes are showing up at the same time.

SoCalFlyBoy... here is my route from California this year. It was North past Las Vegas, landing at Canyonland (KCNY) for leg 1. The next leg was North East up and around the tallest peaks of the mountains and an East turn landing at Alliance NE (KAIA). Last leg of day one was an Easterly course over NE and into Iowa. I picked Le Mars, IA to spend the night solely on the fact that there are three hotels across the street from the airport (KLRJ). That left one three hour flight on the morning of day 2 to get into OSH. Of course the weather didn't agree with that, so I sat and waited for an hour in Portage WI (C47), before flying the final leg into the show.

Thanks to all for the kind words on the video. I enjoy making them, so it' nice to hear that a few of you also like to ride along and watch. Thanks.

Great job of flying the aircraft!

This is a great example of why you do not want to arrive at OSH with minimum fuel.

Nice video! Bruce, remove the "maybe" from your quote. Really hope to meet you one day as I use your website frequently for reference while building :-)
