The Largest OSH Formation?

Meg Godlewski’s article in the Aug. 24 issue, Formation flight honors Van’s RVs, quoted Stu McCurdy as stating that the 35 ship RV formation flown this year was the largest ever at Oshkosh. He is not even close to correct! In 1999, the T-34 Association put up a 61-ship formation, and I am quite sure that the T-6 community has often exceeded the 35 ship RV “big one.” The picture (right) was shot through my windscreen while I was leading one of the middle elements in the 1999 Oshkosh T-34 formation. Runway 36 is visible over the nose as we made one of our arrival (from Sturgeon Bay) passes.
