Watching Planes Arrive


For the second day in a row we have awakened to low ceilings at KOSH. It’s eerily quiet again and we are watching arrivals via flightradar24. The ceilings are forecast to lift later this morning so hopefully there will be an influx of arrivals this afternoon. None of us want to see a replay of the Sunday fiasco from last year when the weather on the weekend didn’t break until Sunday at noon, creating a huge mess for the controllers and pilots.

There are 3 mass arrivals scheduled for today as well. Many of us love to watch all of the airplanes arriving for the show, for nowhere on earth will you see so many arrivals of so many different airplanes in such a short time. With a few hours of watching you can be rewarded with a realtime view of aviation history by real flying airplanes making real airplane noises!
