Oshkosh, WI photos

Here are just a few photos from our trip to Oshkosh, WI.

I need to dig out the old photos when I was a kid and show a 'then and now' photo. We always took a family photo standing in front of our RV before we left.
This is my future car, Terrafugia; except I want mine to have rotor blades on top to get me out of the traffic jam I am stuck in. This one still needs a run way.
Just a cool pics of several airplanes flying through the sky in groups.
Yay, a photo of me with the kids!
Like father, like son! These boys are the loves of my life. (Brian too, but he is not into airplanes and I knew he would not enjoy this trip).
Withstanding 78 mph hurricane winds. Luca loved the wind blowing in his face.
Car vs. airplane. Nothing really hit and blew up, just pyrotechnics to make it look cool. There were two planes and two cars racing each other going in opposite directions.
This little experimental helicopter is called the Mosquito. There is no way I would get in that thing and actually go up in the sky.
Nico was excited to get to go up into an old Canadian fighter plane.
It rained one morning, but we put on our raincoats and forged ahead. The rain only lasted for a few hours. It was then just overcast the rest of the day (and cool).
I love the skywriter!
This is a jet powered glider.
A wing walker....nuts!
The parachute team opened the airshow each day.
They SkyCrane releasing a load of water in its demonstration. This was cool!
Nico getting into a little 'hands on' demonstration in the NASA building.
Luca loving the ride on airplanes. I actually made a rocking airplane and gave it to a benefit auction. I have more pieces to make one but just need to get it put together.
This boy loves his ice cream!!!! He would take a bite and just giggle.
