Oshkosh/Wittman Field (Static, Warbirds, Homebuilt, Pioneer Airport areas), Appleton/Outagamie County, Fond du Lac, Milwaukee/General Mitchell, Chicago/O’Hare – Thursday 28th July 2011 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

A quick early morning look around the static area with no people around. Just some pictures as most of these were logged the day before;

Then it was straight off to the Warbirds area, again in the hope of beating the footfall there. Not the best light conditions but it was still early and another bad weather system was approaching.

My time at Oshkosh was coming to an end as bad weather was due to arrive and as I not yet done the overflow airfields of Appleton and Fond du Lac, I decided to leave a bit earlier but not before I took a scenic helicopter flight. These can be had at Pioneer Airport in rather nice Bell 47s which are kept busy all day, every day of AirVenture.

Having spent 4 and a half days at Oshkosh, I was very happy with my lot by the Thursday of AirVenture 2011. I was flying back home from Chicago on Friday afternoon, so wanted to make sure I was back in plenty of time. I was also ready for a slower pace!

Even so, I wanted to do both Appleton and Fond du Lac before leaving the area as I had been advised that both airfields take in lots of aircraft visitors connected to the Oshkosh event, but for some reason choose not to fly in to Wittman Field. I wasn’t to be disappointed……

20 minutes drive up the I-41 North from Oshkosh sees me at Appleton/Outagamie County. No access possible here and there were many more visitors that I couldn’t identify due to a combination of how they were parked and extreme heat haze. I suspect that if I had got here earlier before the heat started and given myself a bit more time, I could have got a lot more. Made 54 out of 62 logged here between 12:15-13:15.

Then it was back South down the I-41 taking me back past Oshkosh on the way. I will be back one day! Fond du Lac was much busier this time and I had a good walk around here taking photos and reggies no problem at all. Took the on site shuttle bus to get around the stuff that was parked on the other side of the active runway. From 13:50-15:10, made 173 out of 187….

Just over a one hour drive South later towards Chicago, I thought I would break the journey up by stopping at Milwaukee/General Mitchell which was pretty productive on my last visit. Back then though I couldn’t read off the based KC-135’s and as I needed one, I had every incentive to try again.

Given the heat at Appleton and Fond du Lac, I wasn’t that hopeful, but it seemed to be a bit cooler here. Got my Stratotanker (57-1514) so I was a happy bunny. Made 29 out of 53
here during a quick stint here from 16:15-17:00…

I was tempted to do Chicago Executive/Pauwaukee for some more biz, but I saw that available daylight was fast running out and that I would make more at O’Hare in the few hours left. Got here around 18:15 and as before, I spotted from Scott Street with the aid of the trusty SBS with no law enforcement interference. Made a quick 61 out of 187 seen before darkness and another major thunderstorm and more torrential rain stopped play.
