Oshkosh is getting close.   So who is going and how many Helios?   When and where can we connect?    Cheers/  Bob Wallace

I will be at Oskosh with my  C-GOII    serial number  011   I will be the oldest Helio on the airport because the #001 is not coming
so I will fly in on saturday morning from Montreal via Sault Ste Marie

Hope to see many Helio

I live one mile North of the airfield, if anyone wants anything,  here is my contact info.

The Thunderbirds arrive Thursday between 2:30-6:00 PM, so plan for that

My wife works at LaSure's Cafe and Bakery right across the street from the North 40, if you want to get off field for a bit.

I'm disappointed to be missing Oshkosh this year and seeing all the Helios.  I'm over in Poland this week flying in the World Glider Aerobatic Championships instead. :)  One of our towplanes is an M14 powered Yak-12 which is about the same size and role as the Courier.

Walking around OSHKOSH today
No helio sightings yet
No info at vintage parking
Please let us know where you arrive
N565JS #039 was built in 1957, so was that prototype or
first flight in 1954?
I flew in from Munich this year, so Helio next year?
