If you camp anywhere at Oshkosh, be it Camp Scholler, North 40, Ultralight, or other, an Oshkosh day begins at 6:00 am!
6:00 am: Vroom, Vroom…. Yeah! While I love the smell of Jet fuel in the morning, I dig the sound of airplanes even more 🙂
6:30-7:30 am: Morning ablutions, shower, breakfast and some great hanger flying…
8:00-8:30 am: Just about ready to head out to the flight line to check out the incredible array of home built, vintage, warbird, ultralight, military and commercial airplanes. The greatest collection one would ever except to find in one place, all at the same time!
9:00-9:30 am: Register and pick-up a T-shirt for the Womenventure photo shoot…. by the way, there is also a breakfast and lunch event if you can make it….
10:00 am: Just enough time to squeeze in some flight line walking or visiting the different vendors in the Hangers A through D or other displays….

10:45-11:00 am: Time for the Womenventure photo shoot with the WASP and Boeing mentees. If you are lucky enough to get there a few minutes early….
11:30-12:45: Catch a forum… or a workshop…maybe about Cessna powerplant or Engine Failure or painting or welding or some other…
12:45-1:30: Lunch and more hanger flying with friends….
2:00-4:00: Ride in a Bell Helicopter (Breezy, Seaplane, Ultralight, Ford Tri-Motor or other), Pioneer Airport, Compass Hill and EAA Museum….
4:00-6:30: Rush back to watch the rest of the Airshow…
6:30-8:00: Drinks, Dinner and more hanger flying….
8:00-10:00 pm: Night Airshow… fireworks and more….
10:00 pm and beyond: Crawling back to camp site, exhausted and excited, for some much needed ZZZs, before it all begins again….
I just returned from #OSH14, and I am already looking forward to 2015.
Stay tuned for more details 🙂
Wow that sounds awesome. Almost makes me feel I wasted my day yesterday…
🙂 there is always too much to do/see and too little time!
Quite a lot of vintage military aircraft there! I wouldn’t have expected the fairly large number of jets. Cool Ford Trimotor, too. (At least I think that’s what it is, getting fueled in the fourth photo.) 🙂
Yes it is 🙂 Rides are offered on the Ford Tri-motor each year.
