Jul 2017 It was a 2-Ship Adventure!
Woohoo, I made it to OSH!! My buddy Dennis Hutchinson and I flewÂ a 2-ship Saturday from MQJ to OSH; me in my oh-so-gorgeous Decathlon and Dennis in his just completed homebuilt restoration project, a Davis DA-2A. Both birds are patriotic as heck flashing nothing but red white & blue! 🙂
The weather stretching from OSH to my home base at MQJ (central Indiana) has been lousy. Our goal was to depart for OSH at the crack-of-dawn Saturday. Â Friday evening we had a reasonably good forecast that, if it had played out, would have had us landing on a colored dot by noon Saturday. Of course, it didn’t work out as planned, and we had a big thunderstorm rolling through just north of us at sunrise. So we did what good pilots do, sat in the hangar swapping stories Saturday morning and waited it out. At 11:30 a.m. we did one last radar check and deemed ourselves ‘good to go’.
I hope to meet lots of lady taildragger pilots at AirVenture this week. Here’s our own little list of events happening during the week. Please come! Â LadiesLoveTaildraggers OSH 2017
