Airventure 2010 -- Complete with Crash

Morty is in Oshkosh for the annual air show. Rain last week put the kibosh on many camping areas,  but we are close to where we were last year, just in a little more mud. The pictures at the end of this slide show depict a jet that crashed on landing right in front of us. Talk about freezing in the headlights, I was 200 feet from the plane with my camera ready to take pictures, but I could only think about which way to run as this guy was coming right for us and out of control. There are some published airborne and crashing pictures here.

Stratham Longhorns Take Tournament

The Longhorns from Stratham today won decisively two games and the tournament from the Oyster River team that beat them earlier in the week.

Stratham Library

Today, Julia and I biked to the library where she was helping teach knitting. On the way back a big C5A Galaxy flew over as it was taking off from Portland. In the afternoon, Lynne and I took D for some miniature golf encore. Danny's tournament baseball game was exciting as they faced a team that they had already dispatched to the losers bracket. Lots of infield hits yielded lots of runs and the occasional high fly seemed to be the only sure out. Playing right field, Danny got more than his share of those. He scored twice in one inning and again in a latter one as the Longhorns prevailed.
