The Aviators Public Premiere at AirVenture 2010

Partnering with EAA to Launch The Aviators

The Aviators and the 170,000 member strong Experimental Aircraft Association (better known as "EAA") have formed an alliance that will bring the show's cast and crew to AirVenture 2010 to officially launch the new series.

The public premiere of The Aviators will take place in the Skyscape Theatre of the AirVenture Museum in the latter part of AirVenture 2010 which occurs in Oshkosh, WI between July 26rd and August 1st.

The premiere will involve cast introductions, a question and answer period, an autograph session, and the first public viewing of the entire first episode of The Aviators which is due to make its television premiere in September on Public Television in the United States and on Global and CHEK in Canada.

See you there!
I will be headed up either Thursday or Friday of this coming week.
I work in Vintage Aircraft Security as a volunteer, this is my 19th year in a row for Osh, 17 as a volunteer.
I'll try and get some time to stop in and see you!

PS-- Just checked out your pictures, ohhh my gossshhh , you're an ultra-frighter!! lol!
I"ll make sure to wear my crash helmet when I pass the end of the ultrafrights runway in my VAA Security vehicle!!!
I'll let the crew at the Tall Pines cafe know that you guys are on the loose!
Was just thinking that that first picture of you guys by the Ultralight would make a great mug shot poster to put up on the bulletin boards! lol!

Seriously speaking, good luck with your TV project!

Hi Ed. I'm the only guy from VAM in the photo you are referring to in the Sept post. I had a blast on that trip and really enjoy that style of flying. Fast and high isn't for me. The Challenger 2 is a good all around and safe light sport airplane for local flying around the patch. It will even thermal turning the engine off at a couple thousand feet. I've been questioning lately if I can personally commit to full scale aviation finishing the build and giving the plane the needed attention on a weekly basis. In my adventure of learning visiting shops/hangers of homebuilt aircraft over the past 7 years I've seen completed projects only to rot in a hanger and don't want to be that guy. At any rate, it's been enjoyable so far.

An old RC soaring friend, John Hohensee, sent me this message from his son, James, who took his interest in modeling into a career in aeronautical engineering.

In case you ever wanted to know some of what I do in California.

The one million pound takeoff

A new 747-8 Freighter recently headed down the runway in California tipping the scale at more than one million pounds. As you can see in the video, the test airplane lifted majestically into the air, becoming the heaviest airplane takeoff in Boeing's history.

Hey guy's! Here is a video that I thoroughly enjoyed!!! I hope you do too! It is about 24 minutes long and worth every minute! I love the ending, but don't cheat and go there first.
