 It was a great opening day at OSH14... the weather was very nice and there were airplanes and people all over the place. I made a couple runs thru much of the grounds and found lots of interesting to take pictures of. The following are some of those pix with simple captions captions. I hope you enjoy!


Rich Alldredge: QED pilot and project leader (after the passing of originator Jim Moss)


A very unique view of a very unique airplane!


As you can see, the Gee Bee QED is a really big airplane!


The cockpit of the big Gee Bee beast


Cessna 170's and other classics in the Vintage parking/camping


The one-week-wonder Zenith project begins on day number 1


A busy build team and lots of observers of the Zenith CH750 quick build project


I'll try to post some updated pix of the project each day


It was my first chance to see a V-22 Osprey fly... I was impressed!


More pix and a little info tomorrow.

Great pix, Martt. I've always thought that the Gee Bee R-6H / QED / Conquistador del Cielo was the best looking of all the Gee Bee's. To have built one from scratch is beyond impressive.
