Here’s a story about a now firmly-established, mid-sized U.S. East Coast Air Show with a good cross section of local and national aviation talent that always is entertaining.

Normally it’s pretty quiet up here at Stewart, about five miles west of the Hudson River near the city of Newburgh, an old industrial town right on the river...

What’s a girl to do? It’s another grey day in Indiana. The sun is not even trying to peek though and I want to go flying! I’m grounded. And I don’t have a pilot’s license or a pilot (for that matter.) I look at the calendar and see that we are just under 30 days until EAA AirVenture!!! It’s that time again.

I go to Oshkosh for the 500,000+ people and to see my friends from Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, Florida, West Virginia, even Canada and New Zealand. I can’t wait to see their smiling faces and hear about their journey to OSH17.

In just under thirty days, my boys and I will awake to the sounds of Team Aeroshell or the GEICO SkyTypers. No alarm is ever needed...
