Held every year, the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh airshow apparently had ~750,000 visitors in 2007 and roughly 100,000 visitors on July 28th, 2007, the day the we went.

  Click on the links above to navigate among the latest very light jet (VLJ) designs.

My boys at Canon are busy plastering their name everywhere, although I saw a surprising amount of Nikon hardware and not nearly enough 'L' glass out there from the Canon folks.

 

 




 

 




Apparently this beast can go backwards pretty darn fast - if you look closely at the engines you can see what looks like an opening in the middle; it is reverse thrust and loud as all heck.

 

 




 

 




 

 




 

 




 

 




 

 




 

 





B-2 stealth bomber in flight

Our latest stealth bomber, the B-2, an inherently unstable design made possible by fly-by-wire technology, which means the computers interpret the pilots control movements along with the planes natural movement to calculate the right reactions to achieve the pilots goal. In some photos you can see the doors that open vertically at the ends of the wings to create drag and turn the plane. Gotta love my technical terminology and spelling!

Tough to see much, but that is the main runway as we departed from the northern runway.
