Trying to evade as much of the heat as possible, we flew up there early and were the first arrival so the Papa Goose got video coverage at the fuel pump right at the beginning of the video.

We had to bug out before the P-51 arrived but we did get to see the low pass by the Air Tractor crop duster, complete with airshow…

Actually going to Oshkosh, by automobile, as part of a long roadtrip. I'll be there on Monday and Tuesday.

Florida seems to be trying to establish an Alabama in the East by hiring all the old Alabama assistant coaches they can find.
