I'm a bit late getting these photos posted; but better late than never, right? The airshow took place last week. My son, Ben, won a trip for two to the Oshkosh Airshow. He invited his dad to accompany him on the trip. It was a good bonding experience and an opportunity to get away to do something a little bit different, out of the ordinary. Mr. B drove out to visit the boys and he and Ben flew out to Oshkosh the next day.
Their view from the plane showed the fields looking like a patchwork quilt. It's such a pretty view to look out and see. Whenever I fly this is one of the reasons I like a window seat. The views are great.
A view of the interior of the plane in which they flew to Oshkosh. Ben looks comfortable here, camera at the ready, a cold drink in hand. Let the weekend begin!
Mr. B had to get a shot of the dashboard of the plane that took them out to Wisconsin. Dashboard? Is that the correct term for a plane's control panel? It looks complicated to me. Or it could be a very elaborate computer simulator. . . Nope, this one's for real.
Here's a view of the dashboard in the rental car they had for the weekend.
A big welcome to the Oshkosh Air Show. Step under the arch and enjoy the activities.
I can display the photos, but don't know all the details about the planes. So some input in the comments is welcome here.
Here's another plane.
How cool is this - take your motorcycle along on your next flight!

This was not a real bomb. No one was injured during filming of the airshow. Okay, just a light-hearted comment. This was a simulated bomb attack during the show for effects. It's a pretty good illusion. You'll notice no one's running for their lives.
There were lots of other digital photos stored in the camera when Mr. B got back. This small sampling gives a good feel for the show. Mr. B said he had a good time and was glad to have had the opportunity to share this time with Ben.
