Wow. Great photography. Alum overcast has sure changed since I shot her at WestMemphis in 87. Or was it 88.......

Love the shots of hte early P38G they got outta the ice.

Also, what the blazes is htat oversized 747? Never saw one of those before.

Glacier Girl. Her story is an interesting read.
I love the P.38 the most of all the USAAF persuit planes, well maby the Jug is up there near the top on my list too.

But in my heart there will always be a special place reserved for the Bf.109 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif
Boy I wish I could attend an air show with one of those in it.

Extremely nice work with these photos. That FJ-4 is a rare Bird.

Thank's for sharing!

It's a 747 version of the old "Pregnant Guppy" cargo plane used for carrying oversized cargo like rocket parts. The Dreamlifter will be used for carrying 787 components between plants.

Really nice pix there- thanks so much for sharing them! I was in Oshkosh in 96'- it reminded me that I need to get to more fly-ins and air museums and drag the family along http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

Thanks for the kind comments on my photos, all~! I'm using a Nikon D300 with a 70-300mm DX-VR lens for these shots.

I think my favorite surprise arrival of the show were the two FA-18s dressed up as Russian SU27s. They were on hiatus from Top Gun.

When did they move the Elkhart (EKM) tower to Oshkosh? (pic of Aluminum Overcast) Just yanking your chain! Beautiful pictures, Thanks a lot! (my pole barn is used by a lot of pilots of Bizz jets and Warbirds as a reference point for turning base for runway 9 at Elkhart).

Hehehe. I thought someone would catch that. The EAA guys always stop in Elkhart a week before Oshkosh starts. I just missed getting a chance to fly on the plane during that week, but I did get a chance to do a TV story for the local CBS affiliate. If a plane is involved, my Nikon always comes along~!

..... Surly, you are an absolute GUNSLINGER with that camera - superb photo essay. Especially loved some of the in-flight shots.

S!

Awesome pictures. I live in Milwaukee and haven't been to the EAA in years, was thinking about going this year, now I kinda regret it!

Oh, and speaking of Elkhart, I was in the neighborhood for the Kohler International Challenge a few weeks ago, quite lovely in July, or any month for that matter.
