A couple weeks back (yeah, I'm lazy in getting this blog up to date) was beautiful spring weather - which meant time to dust off the wings and take to the skies. Since we were working on annuals, we were grounded, but we were fortunate to have several friends stop by the hangar, including Dan & Diane Sokolowski and Jim Pippert & Deb, who was visiting from D.C., both pairs enjoying the day flying across Iowa in
It's that time of year again... Time for the airplanes' annual inspections. Brian removes panels and goes through checklists (knuckle scraping and cussing included), while I *try to* scrub off the oil, bugs and grease that have been baked onto some of the hardest-to-reach places over the past year. When it's all said and done, we go home tired with grease under our fingernails, more new boxes being delivered by the UPS guy than we'd like, and thankful that we'll have twelve months before having to do it all again.
Recently about a dozen of us got together at Ted and Lisa Lockards for their annual Six Months Til OshKosh Party. There we enjoyed videos of past fly-ins and checked out their nearly finished RV-10 being built in the garage (which means yet another excuse to go flying soon!).
Any stories you'd like to share about Oshkosh - the world's largest fly-in?
