  1. For those interested in hearing the fire mission in action, there's some good traffic of the tankers working the Camp fire near Chico, CA available here during daytime hours: https://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/20854/web If looking for a phone option, I use the Scanner Radio Deluxe app

    Flying Videos Thread Part 2?

    Kermit Weeks copiloting the Martin Mars: Don't believe this has been posted before. Soundtrack gets a bit wonky at the end.

    Nice OV-10 film from the '70s, including a few seconds of Bob Hoover at the stick. Don't believe this has been posted before:

    Oshkosh 2018

    The Air Boss during the air show is great listening, particularly during one of the larger air shows on Friday and Saturday. Neat insight into what goes on behind the scenes to make that show happen. The air show video is streamed live here.

    Oshkosh, b'gosh!

    Couldn't agree more. My first fly-in was '76; I was still in the stroller. My grandfather's first fly-in was the first one in '53; he manned the crash crew that the WI-ANG supplied, as he and Paul served together in the 128th. It can't be summer in Wisconsin without Oshkosh. I'll just leave this here; best Oshkosh arrival video I've seen:
