You may recall that Gina and I landed at OSH last summer on our giant flying trip. However, we didn't have enough time to visit the museum that day due to weather. We landed for fuel and I had to figure out a flight plan that would put us closer to home while keeping us clear of thunderstorms. In the end, we flew to Kalamazoo to spend the night with my sister and flew home to Dayton the following day.
Anyway, I'm glad I was able to return to Oshkosh (no, I still haven't made it there for AirVenture - working on that...) and visit the EAA AirVenture Museum. It's certainly not as massive as the incredible USAF Museum that's in my backyard here at home, but it's a very nice museum. And it's free for me to visit as an EAA member!
Here are some photos I took during my visit - enjoy!

I've been traveling a ton but have some flights planned in the near future, so hang around... I'll be back to regularly aviating soon!
