Oshkosh 2011 Pictures

Well, another year gone by and another Oshkosh AirVenture passed.  We did not attend this year but I wanted to post a link to the outstanding pictures that were posted on the WIX forum.  One great shot is the one above of Ed Vesely flying lead in the CAF Helldiver with an F-18 Hornet on his wing.  The F-18 is wearing a historic Navy paint scheme in honor of the Navy's 100th Anniversary.  Thanks to Chris Garber for allowing me to post his photo.

Oshkosh is THE aviation event to make so if you haven't been you need to plan to make the event at any cost.  It is worth it.  It is like an aviation family reunion!  So many airplanes and so many friends all in one place.

Take a few minutes to look thru all the pictures by following this link to the 2011 Oshkosh Photo Thread.
