Oshkosh has really kicked into high gear and a lot of pictures are hitting the forums and news sites. One article off of EAAs web site was a fun read. The Morris family completed the restoration of two Culver Cadets and they are on display at Oshkosh this year. Read the article here. To read the detail story of the restoration of one of the Cadets and view the series of pictures go to Taildragger Aviation. A few months back I received a picture from the Morris' of one of the Cadets airborne. Outstanding restoration of one of the little known vintage cruisers!

This weekend over in Duxford, England is the annual Flying Legends Warbird show. The Plane Talk forum should be THE place to catch up on the latest pictures from the event. One of the early arrivals was the Fw190 from France. Check it out here! Who would have thought we would ever see the shape of a Fw-190 in the skies again!? Watch here for links to more highlights.

About two weeks ago I had a crew from Detail Werks come out and help me catch up on my polishing. They did a professional job and the shine is the best it has been in years. I highly recommend these guys. If you have a polished airplane and you are in the DFW area. Give Brian a call and tell him Dan sent you.
July 4th my buddy Jay and I took to the skies. It was warm and bumpy but worth the flight. We also took some time to shoot some videos of the flying. Hope to release that video soon. The picture above was taken out in the sunshine so the new polish job can be seen at its best!
