Another Tough Weekend For Airshows... Two Pilots Lost

Accidents in Oregon and China Take Pilot's Lives

It's been a lousy weekend to be an aviation journalist as we document the tragic loss of two well-known pilots in two separate airshows accident.. each on the other side of the world. At the 1st Silk Road International General Aviation Convention held at Danxia airport in China, well-known Red Bull pilot Michel Leusch (shown here) was lost when a performance resulted in a series of rolling descending maneuvers that inexplicablu terminated in a ground impact some 300-400 feet from the edge of the runway. Leusch made a name for himself in both model as well as full scale aviation. On the other side of the world, a 1941 450 Stearman flown by NW Aerobat Marcus Paine apparently failed to execute a loop, which terminated in contact with the ground shortly before 1500 local time, in Madras, OR. The aircraft caught fire shortly after impact but Paine was extricated quickly by first-responders... but none-the-less succumbed to his injuries.

Oshkosh 2016: The Highs, The Lows, The Heroes and The Bozos…

A Look Back At The Aero-Equivalent Of Burning Man, Woodstock, And An Old Fashioned Tent Revival—All Rolled Into One Week in Wisconsin

With Oshkosh all of a few weeks in the rear-view mirror, we come to a time when we TRY to evaluate what happened this year… in both positive and negative terms.  We’ve tried a few variants on this report in the past… and some of them have worked better than others, but we’re going to try to present a group of shorter segments, as we move through a few general categories (Heroes, Regrets, Coolest Players, Coolest Moments, Bozos, Planes, Gadgets, Fan Favorites, etc…) so that we can try to make a proper report of the many high and low-points of AirVenture 2016… If any of you have anything to add, please do so, we’ll be revisiting this topic via a half dozen or more categories over the next month and we’d love to have YOUR viewpoints added to the mix. But for now… Here are our selections for Oshkosh Heroes 2016...
