Hi Holger,

Here are some pictures I took at OSH of the 3 BD-4s that were there. I also took a few pictures of a "new" BD plane that looks a lot like a combination of the old Yankee and the BD-17 (same wings, tail and landing gear). Thought you might be interested - feel free to post on the web site as appropriate. I am sending the BD shots first (one is of the prop tag as I did not recognize the name or plane).

Keith Fuller - not an owner or builder, but a list lurker...

Thank you, Keith, for sending in these beautiful pictures! If one of you were there and took some pictures...send them to me and I will put them up here.

Looks like this year's star was Jason Glenn. What a beauty!! This is the first completed TeamAviation kit I've seen so far. Glenn: send us some more information, we're all so curious to learn more about your plane!

James Calamon has more pictures from Oshkosh on his website. James: The brown BD-4 is from Richard Martin. And yes, he is from Colorado. Richard: did you demonstrate your leading edge cuffs?
