For the last 18 days I have been pouring over photo feeds from Oshkosh to soak up as much aviation goodness as I can since I did not make the show this year. The weather and attendance looked outstanding this year. Too many highlights to try and list. Be sure to set aside some time to look back through the EAA Flickr albums here. If you are on Instagram search the hashtag #osh18 for loads of photos.
EAA has posted the award winners for 2018 here. It was fun to see that Rusty Morris' Cessna 170B, N2935D as the winner of the Grand Champion Classic. It is a beautiful 170B and well deserving of the award! Below is a photo of N2935D back in 2010 in VERY original condition. Not many "barn find" originals exist anymore so when I first saw it the details took me back in time. Rusty has refreshed the paint and engine over the last 8 years so an Oshkosh award is no surprise to me. Hats off to the Morris family.
