Hello everyone. I’ve spent my first night in Oshkosh for Airventure 2009. I arrived yesterday afternoon in Milwaukee, got my rental car, and after grabbing some grub for lunch and some supplies for camping, I drove on up to Oshkosh, and set up my camping area at the MyTransponder basecamp.
Then I found out some good news from Rod at MyTransponder. I was scheduled to do a media flight in a brand new G1000 Cessna 206 Thursday morning. Stoked. Unfortunately, we woke up this morning to pretty heavy rain, and the media demos were postponed. Not sure if I’ll still get to fly it, but hoping for a reschedule soon.
The best part, though, is the I got to finally meet up with so many people that I haven’t seen in a while and meet some other friends that I’ve never met face to face. Steve Tupper, Jason Miller, David Allen, and a couple others did a little jam session, so we got to listen to some music, catch up, and basically have a good time.
Tonight is the MyTransponder party in our campground, and I’m really looking forward to that. If anyone is here at Oshkosh, follow MyTransponder and/or me on Twitter for more information. http://twitter.com/MyTransponder and http://twitter.com/billwil. I’ll see you all there!
Okay, I’ll try to keep you posted as we go, here. In the meantime, enjoy a shot taken by Mike Miley of MyTransponder of work being done on the Ford Tri Motor.
