EAA Oshkosh 2006 Images

My camera was on the fritz Friday, so some of these are wonky. Great day at Oshkosh, though!

Jenny loads her stomp-rocket for another flight; she was getting better than 50 feet out of this thing.

Brendan watches his stomp-rocket soar.

A formation of Navy planes across the decades. From left to right, an F/A-18 Super Hornet, an F4U Corsair, the only flying FJ4 Fury, and another Super Hornet.

The only Avro Lancaster still flying in the New World (there's another in the UK).

The Heavies. Front row, left to right, is a B-24 (only two flying) and two B-17s; back row is a B-25 and the only flying Avro Lancaster. The missing-man formation always puts a lump in my throat; with 16 big aero engines thundering overhead, it was really something as the B-24 pulled sharply up and off.
