I have a couple of shots of the camping area in my phone. I'll try to get a few more, and I'll post them in about a week--home computer is a lot more familiar for me.

While they do have water/electric sites available now, they are pricey. Most of it is boondocking with water and dump resources nearby. All areas allow generators between 7 am and 10 pm. Some allow them to run all night. I've been comfortable here for a week, even though I'm doing my own water carrying and blue tank dumping. Camping equipment ranges from one-person tents to mega motor homes.

Mimi,

If you email to yourself the photos on your phone, you can save them onto your IPad and post them from there.

I still remember the Prop Wash of 13000HP and the roar of the 10 P-51's that made it. What a fond memory. My one disappointment was that they moved the B-17 off the field. It did fly over ,but not low enough .

Camped in South 40

Wish the Cardinal could pull the Airstream but packed the tents, I am now camped down in Port Aransas Texas in the airstream this week.

OSH16 was a great experience, as always. From the Martin Mars that flew every day (Kermit Weeks sponsored the fuel and other costs to bring it to AirVenture--some $40K as I heard it), to the night air shows, the Snowbirds that haven't been to Oshkosh in 33 years, the eight Spartans parked in the Vintage area, the C-5, F-4's, all the Coast Guard aircraft, "Fightertown" down in the warbirds area with all the P-51's, P-40's, etc.

And then there are the seminars and Warbirds-In-Review, this year a memorable one with Army pilot Bill Reeder, who was flying a Cobra when shot down at Ben Het, then marched up the Ho Chi Minh trail for months before arriving in Hanoi to spend the rest of his POW time in the Hanoi Hilton. His story of perseverance, attitude and endurance should be heard by everyone, particularly the young.

Yes, there seemed to be more Airstreams than I remember in the past. About two dozen scattered all over Camp Scholler. Attendance in general was up and the campground was full, at least closer to the airfield. Everyone seemed to be having a great time, with many campfires, group meeting tents and lots of laughter.

If you haven't been to Oshkosh and you like airplanes, this ought to be on your bucket list!

I love aircraft but my stomach doesn't like them

I the past month a couple of warbirds flew over Nixa; B-17 and a couple of days ago a P-51. Love the sound of the Merlin.

I'll definitely have to plan on attending this event.

Thanks for sharing

Kelvin

Lucky Airstreamer. I will be there next year. It will be my fourth trip at EAA Air Venture. I lost my medical last year and trade my airplane for a new 27FB and a Denali 2500. Enjoy the stay.
