With AirVenture quickly approaching, I’d like to remind everyone about our LadiesLoveTaildraggers meet-ups. For our two lunches, I need a rough idea of how many to expect.

At the Hilton Garden Inn we can push a bunch of tables together, introduce ourselves and have a great time. It does require some advance planning on your part though. The Hilton Garden Inn is on the field (north of 9/27) and, depending on where you are at OSH, can take some time to get there. Plan accordingly – it could easily take an hour from some points on the field. Walk or take a trolley past Warbirds and make your way to the North 40 buses. Climb aboard one of the yellow school buses that skirt from there to the OSH Terminal Building and ask them to STOP at the Hilton Garden Inn. Here’s what you’ll be looking for!

Welcome to The Hilton Garden Inn Oshkosh

Hilton Garden Inn, Rooftop Terrace Cafe. Enter from outside up the stairs or through the front doors and up the steps.

And finally, whatever you do, don’t miss Thursday’s 11:00 a.m. ‘Vintage in Review’ program with Ray Johnson! It’s ‘Ladies Who Love Taildraggers’ Day and Ray will be interviewing two lady taildragger pilots flying their Vintage aircraft to AirVenture. Please come and support these ladies on Thursday at 11:00 and wear your LLT tshirts!! Don’t have one? They will be available for sale!

      • Jan Johnson from California & her very special 1952 C195A affectionately named “Elsie”. Elsie has her own Facebook page and more Facebook “friends” than most people do. Jan is one dynamic lady – don’t miss this opportunity to meet them both!
      • Sierra Lund from Georgia & her C140. On June 29, Sierra, a 17 year old student pilot departing on a solo cross-country from Peachtree, GA, lost her engine at 400′ and made an emergency landing in an Atlanta area golf course. Meet Sierra and her C140 and hear her amazing story. (Yes, Sierra has a C140 – another great story!)
