Anybody there? Pics?

Have not been yet, Reno has always been mecca for me, but one of these days, hopefully soon!

Hi Mate,

I was there this time last year, what a great place!

Hoping to be there in 2014.

Regards

I've seen one Widgeon photo posted on the Av-Web site.
N45PV shot while taxiing in, it now has a Black anti-glare panel on the nose that also turns into a thin tapering trim stripe.
The stripe runs under the windows back to the second step.

Bill, was it somewhere else (WIX maybe) where your signature mentioned something about not forgetting the hull drain plugs?

Like in these photos of N45PV: https://picasaweb.google.com/olesarge42/N45PVWidgeonPix# (although wasn't it still N45CA at the time...?)

LOL, That's EXACTLY what I meant.
Interesting photos, I've never seen a gear swing done like that before !
(And I'm not sure I want to see it again, very spooky)

Learn something new every day, I thought N45pv and N444m were the same machine.

N45PV C/N 1380 is a G-44 and N444M C/N 1411 is a G-44A.
Other Widgeons noted at Oshkosh were N7491 C/N 1240, N101PE C/N 1386 and N402E C/N 1444.

I'd just love to take N63350 there one year.

It's good to have goals, right?

Good Morning,

I made my first pilgrimage to Oshkosh last year and ca't wait to return.

It's a 'must do in your lifetime' event but you must prepare yourself to return!

You have been warned, it's somewhat addictive.

Regards

How about this year? Anyone?

Won't be checking it off my bucket list this year.
