AirVenture Oshkosh 2008 – Day 1 – Part 3


This is a regular blog post. Please check the other posts if you’re looking for show notes or links to show audio.

Yeah, Patty Wagstaff gets her own post. In a class all by herself. Really nice, really precise aerobatics in an Extra. Can’t quite figure out why I failed to post these last night. Might have been that it was getting pretty late, but these shots turned out pretty well.


She seems to make sure that she flies quite a few low passes in front of the crowd and shows a lot of airplane whenever possible. I do note for the record that I don’t seen to have a lot of shots that show the cockpit. The light just happened to catch my eye when she was presenting the underside to the crowd.

I’m posting some downsized shots here. The bandwidth is a little strained here in the early evening and it seems that uploading slightly downsized files is probably the neighborly thing to do.
