Oshkosh Fly-In # 4

You know car engines have cylinders aligned either in a straight line or in a V configuration.  This airplane has its cylinders aligned in a circle.


The U S Marines have airplanes too.


This airplane has pontoons for landing in the water.  It is a big airplane large enough to carry many passengers.  I have never seen a pontoon airplane this large.


A better view of it.  Notice the number N4273S - that's the plane's radio call sign.  All United States radio stations have call signs prefixed with either W, K, or N - not only aircraft but also your local TV station.


Note this airplane sits on it's tail - others have a nose wheel.  I call these "tail draggers.


A few of the ten thousand airplanes that are here.  These are for sale.  There are plenty of buyers.  I saw planes priced from $40,000 to $650,000.  I was told there are some multi-million dollar planes for sale too.

Trying to catch up with blogging.
