If the weather turns cooler, my "range" will improve. Meanwhile, she's dependent on me to start the generators and run the AC when ventilation will no longer do the job.

I'll get what I can if the Mars flies in the airshow again as it did on Monday, but none of my cameras has enough zoom to get a really good airborne shot.

Hope someone else is here with better equipment.
mimi, pls. don't put your dog in jeopardy. But, if you happen to get a shot, would love to see it.

We have already published some pix of the Mars in prior issues. Am going to mention its attendance at Oshkosh, with or w/o photo.

Thanks.

The Mars flew again today, but I was in a lecture pavilion listening to a speaker, and I realized too late what it was. By the time I got outside, he was on his last pass.

The weather is supposed to cool off a little. If it does, maybe I can get over to the seaplane base for a closer look.

I hope you and your dog aren't suffering in the heat too much.

Perhaps the Mars should scoop some water and douse the entire crowd!

Better yet, maybe a beer company could donate a few thousand gallons.

Now there's a thought...

The heat hasn't been too bad, but then I think of such things by Texas standards. The humidity here has been a challenge a few days, but has improved the last couple of days. I think cooler weather is forecast for the rest of the show.

I just have to be careful of the temps inside my trailer for the dog. All the shady campsites were taken by the time we got here.

Hey FaN, I've got you some shots of the Mars sitting at anchor in Lake Winnebago. I went to the seaplane base today.

Please pm me a phone number for a text or an email. Not sure I know how to get them from my ancient iPhone to a post here.

F15 and P51 Fly -By.

Tuesday night had a F-15 low level fly over that nearly blew the window's out, it was INCREDIBLE ! It did that a few times solo then matched up with a P-51 in formation. WOW!! Last time i was there it had F-22 Raptor's also.

We had to leave Wed.AM . Understand they had the WWII Bombing run's etc. Wed. Nite. Darn. Maybe next year i'll go for the B-17 and P-51 ride and spend a week. Also need to get Generator to power AC.
Walked 6-10 miles a day. It's a "HUGE" event. My favorite is the War-Bird's.

That F-15 flyby freaked my poor dog out completely. She thought thunderstorms were bad until she heard that. The Heritage Flight with the P-51 was cool. I've watched most of the air shows from the campground or attended forums during the show. I think I'll watch from the flight line tomorrow when the Snowbirds get here. I've always wanted to see their show.

Sorry, I haven't taken many photos of the cool airplanes, though there are many. The photos of the Mars are for Fly At Night, per her request.

My focus this year has been forums and gathering information. I've been out of general aviation flying for years, and this is preparation for getting back in. What you don't know can hurt you, rather badly, so this is my way of getting my knowledge current.

Photos

I have taken Less & Less Pictures over the year's. Most time's none. Have two fancy "Canon" camera's and lot's of len's at home. Have found i rarely look at the pictures ,and fewer people want to see them. Have also found that traveling with "Less" is better. The only thing we carried were "Water Camel " back pack's.
Managing all the "Stuff" we would take got more difficult and frustrating.We even left our bikes at home as there not allowed in the expo.Carried Solar panel which makes want them on "Top" another thing not to carry.
Airadventure has a web site with daily picture updates.

Any photos of the camping areas? Might want to attend this event in the near future after retirement.
