A fixture at Oshkosh for over 2 decades, Jerry Sleger and his one man band set up at the corner of Knapp and Vern and produce a magnificent cacophony of sound accompanied by cymbal playing chimps and hula girls. Every year seems to be Jerry’s last and I’ll truly miss him if he’s not there this year.
Video from recent Russian victory day celebrations. Formation of MiG 27’s and 29’s. Can’t say that I’ve ever seen such a tight sustained formation flying involving 2 different types.
Notice how bored Putin looks.
The Canadair CL-84 “Dynavert”, designated by the Canadian Forces as the CX-131, was a V/STOL turbine tiltwing monoplane designed and manufactured by Canadair between 1964 and 1972. Only four of these experimental aircraft were built with three entering flight testing. Two of the CL-84s crashed due to mechanical failures, but no loss of life occurred as a result of these accidents. Despite the fact that the CL-84 was very successful in the experimental and operational trials carried out between 1972 and 1974, no production contracts resulted. The one above is located at the Canadian Aviation Museum in Ottawa.

From big to small, you see it all at Oshkosh.
