The world’s largest aircraft pilot meeting today ended near Chicago. One video and few pictures about fewer seaplanes.

Aircraft firefighting was either of them key topic. 3 aircrafts attended the firefighting show. Viking CL-215 seaplane and 2 wheeled aircrafts, the Air Tractor and the Lockheed C-130 Hercules.

In previous years many more seaplanes rested on the grass, now few.

There was no demonstration of the new seaplane. Last time maybe was 7 years ago.

There are more and more duckweed on the water of Seaplane Base.

Unfortunately, we didn’t find out anything new about Burt Rutan’s SkiGull seaplane.

The 76-year-old legendary world-famous aircraft designer visited to Oshkosh, but his great seaplane project changed a few years ago nothing. But his wife, Tonya Rutan, also learned to fly seaplanes.

  • Thank you for posting. I made it to Osh in my Wheeled 206 and hope to make it in my Amphib 206 next year. Hope to have a photo of my plane on this site.
