EAA Oshkosh – Planeology

EAA Airventure Oshkosh

(OSHKOSH, WI – July 26, 2019)  Before we start today’s quiz, yes – this will require the use of the gray cells, I want to apologize for not getting a blog out yesterday. As any of you know who have attended Oshkosh, the local services get overwhelmed with the influx of cell phones and wireless demands. Yesterday, after spending the better part of an hour trying to be a reasonable wireless signal I threw in the towel and went to bed. The Gods of the Wireless are smiling this evening, so far.

Oshkosh has of all types of aircraft. Oshkosh also has attendees, or should I call them fanatics, who exist to be able to name every aircraft at the event. We’ve all seen them; they are the ones with their nose in the engine or on their knees with their heads up under the cowling. Today, in honor of those devotees, I’ve decided we’ll all play a game. I call it – How’s your Planeology?

The game is simple.  I’ll show you close-ups of an aircraft. In each photo, I’ve given enough information to provide a good clue as to the aircraft.  From the photo you identify the aircraft. Simple, yes?  Good, I’m glad you agree.  Try to do this without your smart device and see how you do. I’ll publish the answers in another blog tomorrow.  The first photo is above.  Have fun!

Look forward to speaking again tomorrow.
