KBST to KOSH 11+ hours of flight time

Postby David » Sun Jul 30, 2017 10:59 pm

Returned from Oshkosh after fighting head winds both ways, I thought hitting 25-30 winds going west I would get the tailwinds on my return. (NOT) we saw mostly 30 - 40 on the nose going back to Maine. It was Long flight hours, but still a great trip even with the delays due to weather.

Saw many old friends and made new ones, what a great time.
Short 5 min video of the trip out with the other 2 RV12, PilotBrent, Skunkworks, and I converged on Springfield, OH.

A few photos from the trip on the way out.

The 3 in La Porte, IN

Brent tied down, but he did have a report of trying to take off with tie downs by the airport mgr.

Marks bird buttoned down for the bad weather

Great time and the 12 does alright on a long x-county
