PJP #020 - Impressions of OSH10

This episode PilotStu, CFIStew and Mike discuss first impressions of AirVenture 2010 in Oshkosh, WI. For Stu, it is quite a bit different than 2009 in that the ground was so saturated from heavy rains that very few aircraft or recreational vehicles were able to get on the grounds. Mike and Stew were lucky in that Mike's N225M Cessna 182 qualifies for Vintage parking.

After a few days of great weather, the grounds began to dry and many more planes and campers were able to move in. In spite of history making "Sloshkosh 2010", it was still a great week and well worth any inconveniences.
