Oshkosh Ho!?

by Tom Bozzo

Someone's been leaving their copies of Flying magazine in the reading rack at the gym, making for an interesting look at how the other half of the other half lives. (Brunch on a sunny weekend morning at O'Malley's Jet Room, where the windows look out on the Wisconsin Aviation ramp at MSN, does much the same thing, and greatly entertains toddlers to boot.)

A short item in the May issue noted that Burt Rutan's X-Prize-winning Space Ship One will be flown by its carrier plane to the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh next month, en route to the Air and Space Museum collection. The AirVenture site confirms this and notes that the Virgin GlobalFlyer (in which the first nonstop solo circumnavigation of the globe was recently flown by Steve Fossett) will appear, too. This is a great opportunity to see these unique aircraft in the wild — the question being whether driving in to the fly-in will overwhelm the 2.75-year-old, who is otherwise enamored of all things vehicular.
