Oshkosh 2011

The Boeing 787 made an appearance.

Amazing how quiet this plane is. Even on takeoff, it was one of the quietest airplanes on the field.

In the morning, we went to listen to the head historian from Kitty Hawk, Darrell Collins, talk about the Wright Brothers' first flight. He's an amazing speaker. The boys helped him hold up this poster as a visual aid for his talk. I ended up ordering one of these posters for my shop.

Rutan designed Beech Starship. This is one of only nine left flying.

Kerin apparently needed a snooze during the airshow.

I think the Harrier may have woken her up. ;-)

Very quiet takeoff.
