Jan 23rd, 2010 - EAA Full Scale Skiplane Fly-In 10:30am
Here's something a little different that may be of interest to members..
Full Scale Skiplane gathering set for EAA Jan 23rd.
The annual EAA Skiplane Fly-In is set for Jan 23rd at EAA AirVenture Museum's Pioneer Airport in Oshkosh. In prior years, more than 25 skiplanes have landed to participate in the event. Majority of skiplanes are scheduled to arrive mid-morning, weather and runway conditions permitting, and will stay until mid-afternoon. If bad weather cancels aircraft arrivals, other activities will continue as planned, including complimentary chili and soup served from 10:30 am until it's gone. Skiplane fly-in is free of charge to the public. Contact EAA website or Sean Elliott at 920-426-4886 for more information.

I tried the hang glider simulator at EAA on Saturday. After Saturday, when it comes to hang gliders, fear of heights isn't my problem; it is a fear of something more permanant than that!
