Go ahead and add the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation and their special brand of fun...

...And the Deckerts with their TBM.


Plus, I have the feeling a certain viermot may make its debut...

But it is Oshkosh, so a lot of other things to see as well.

'Fifi' is down near Madison the weekend before Oshkosh. One can assume she will be at Airventure in some capacity.

Hope so...

But here's the current advertised list of CAF aircraft scheduled to appear "near Madison" (Janesville):

http://www.airpowersquadron.org/janesville-wiscon

No FIFI yet.

Oversight?

Creating suspense?

FIFI won’t be at Janesville. Only the C-45, T-6 and Stearman will be. They will head on to Oshkosh. FIFI will not be at Oshkosh either. She has other stops planned that will be made public later.

I understand the chief pilot of TFLM has said on a Warbird radio P-51C "Lopes Hope" will be at Oshkosh!

I've seen numerous posts, including video and A2A, about That's All Brother's first post-restoration flight today. That would be a cool addition to the flightline.

I also just listened to the Warren Piestch interview myself and he mentions, along with 'Lopes Hope 3rd', they're also hoping to bring their Bearcat and C-53 Skytrooper.

With the latter, do I detect a Berlin Airlift theme brewing? Or a mini-Dakota gathering before the Atlantic crossing next year?

According to the CAF Air Power Tour site, P-51 "Gunfighter" and B-25 "Yellow Rose" will be available for rides out of Appleton during Airventure.
