EAA AirVenture/Oshkosh 2011 – Airventure Museum (Grant Robinson)

On the Wednesday morning of my Oshkosh week I woke up to torrential rain and the mother of all thunder storms. As I couldn’t see the situation improving quickly, I took this as a sign that it was the time to do the AirVenture Museum.

I kept myself amused here for around 3 hours making an impressive 66 new types in the process. Just the Mosquito RS712 dropped here as I saw that at Abingdon show in 1987 just before it departed for the USA and the ownership of Kermit Weeks.

I asked why it was displayed here and was told that the specialized wood veneer used in the construction of the Mosquito’s was made by Roddis Manufacturing in Marshfield, Wisconsin…
