Aero-TV At Oshkosh 2010: Looking Back At Day Two

This is Aero TV's Daily Update on EAA AirVenture Oshkosh for Tuesday, July 27th.

ANN-E-I-C Note: As you read this, over 2 dozen ANN staffers, stringers and associates are finally arriving back home after working their (expletive deleted)'s off at the annual Oshkosh aerial insane asylum. We shot a record amount of material (and dozens of amazing Aero-TV and Aero-Cast programs are now undergoing development), wrote more stories than ever before and quite simply, had a blast working ourselves into a state of semi-consciousness with the BEST Oshkosh Crew we've EVER assembled. We will be re-running our carefully crafted Aero-TV Daily reports each day this week so that those of you who were at the "Big O" can see what we did while you were in Wisconsin trying to dry off and relive the best of the truly amazing (if soggy) week that was Oshkosh 2010.

Following that, we have some surprises for you... big ones -- REALLY big ones. And that means more than just dozens of REALLY great new stories, even greater Aero-TV programs (using some really slick new cameras that will blow you away), and some truly amazing Aero-Casts... and then... well... how about ANN's most aggressive site upgrade in the last five years?

That's right! There's a whole new ANN site coming SOON... and it will debut in a matter of days... and that's ONLY A SMALL PART OF THE GREAT NEW THINGS WE HAVE COMING YOUR WAY... stay tuned!!! -- Jim Campbell, Deeply Fatigued and Somewhat Soggy Editor-In-Chief/CEO (Guy Who Takes The Blame).

**************

USA Today, which for whatever reason now has a standing policy of talking down general aviation, was out on the second day of Oshkosh 2010 with a cheap shot at EAA AirVenture.

Tuesday's story on page 3A appeared under a subhead that reads, "Air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin has history of fatal crashes. The writer, Alan Levin, did acknowledge that the fatals to which he referred did not involve the airshow at Oshkosh, and that most involved obvious pilot mistakes, and many weren't even in the area.

Also below the fold, Levin admits that the incidents involving fuel exhaustion, stall/spins, and encounters with weather beyond the skills of the pilots are a microcosm of accident causes everywhere in GA.

But the most disturbing sensationalized distortion is a claim by Levin about homebuilt aircraft. "Accident data show that such planes have about a five-fold higher risk of crashes." Levin doesn't attribute that statement to any actual statistic, so we have no idea where he picked up that misinformation.

ANN CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell got reaction from Dick Knapinski, EAA's Director of Media Relations.

In better news, Flight Design announced the availability of its popular CTLS on floats. We got details from Tom Peghiny.

We were introduced to a new company at Oshkosh this year. Oma Sud brought its unique Skycar to Oshkosh this year.

Electric aircraft technology is a growing story again this yea at Oshkosh. Sikorsky brought its Firefly electric helicopter technology demonstrator.

And finally, the ever-inventive crews of ANN and Aero-TV offer you a sunny look (now that the rains nave subsided) at the more positive side of Oshkosh... the one apparently never seen by USA Today...

Join us again tomorrow for our next daily update on EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2010... from Aero-TV.
