Brian King submitted this photo and note: "This is Brenna, my daughter and glider student pilot), at her first EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in 2021. Brenna is autistic and was a little apprehensive about her trip. The atmosphere and camaraderie soothed her! Now all she wants to know is 'when can we go back?' It was a wonderful father daughter trip."
Yes, it's worth the trouble to go somewhere. To travel by air with the freedom to go this way or that on a whim. To land on a grass strip for fuel just because you can. Or to set your sights on a destination you've dreamed of for years, but never thought was within your reach. The whole world is ours if we seek it out. One hop at a time. With a mindset that allows us to even enjoy the weather delays and unexpected diversions.
EAA AirVenture 2021 boasted more than 608,000 people, 10,000 planes, and visitors from 66 countries. This year's theme, "The Wait is Over," hit the mark, with "joy and excitement throughout the grounds," according to EAA's Jack Pelton.

I hear the Traffic Alert start, which isn't uncommon for aircraft 500 feet apart in this airspace, and as I look up Aircraft Y tells me he's responding to an RA and his voice is clearly strained. I incorrectly said what I was thinking, which was 'Aircraft X what are you doing! Climb immediately to 5,500' as I'm watching him descend through 5,200 feet right on top of Aircraft Y.He responds that he 'thought they were on a collision course.' To which I informed him that his actions caused the collision course.
Scott Sundstrom submitted this photo and note: "New beginnings for N33LG: This is my son flying his plane he painted by himself to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 after eight months of hard work."
'I enjoy the scenery while I'm flying low and slow, and watching the farmhouses go by," he says. "If you didn't like it, you wouldn't do it."
