Update 3 from Oshkosh

Here’s the latest from special correspondent Doug Johnson at Oshkosh:

Day #3 was just as packed as any day at Oshkosh. After another successful shift of recruiting, Scylar Gale and I went to check out the EAA Museum. It was packed with dozens of bizarre and interesting and famous aircraft! Anything from air racers to gyro-planes to a replica of Space Ship One. I also indulged my inner child and explored the kids section of the museum…which was awesome! There were tons of interactive stations dedicated to learning. One of my favorite stations was demonstrating Ferrofluids. These are magnetic fluids that follow the course of magnetic fields. Check them out on YouTube.

Afterwards we connected with the rest of the group and went to get dinner. Benvenutos… I highly recommend it. Our group decided we wanted to stick around and watch the night airshow with performances from AeroShell’s demo team in T-6s and Matt Yonkin in his Twin Beech 18. It was incredible! The performances were followed by a fireworks demonstration and what is referred to as the “Wall of Fire,” which is essentially a gigantic explosion and also entirely entertaining. Because: things exploding = great time! For day #4 I’m thinking I’m going to hit up the Sea Plane Base and see what kind of cool things are out over there!
