I'm planning my annual trip to Wisconsin for #airventure #osh15. I'll be taking my boys with me this year and likely staying in tents instead of taking one of the campers thousands of miles just for the 3 of us. Send me a message if you'd like to meet up there or along the way. Can't wait! #roadtrip #travel #vacation #airplanes #familytime

THROWBACK THURSDAY: Here’s a look back to #OSH09 and a brief shower that wasn't in the forecast. #tbt

We shared a group photo yesterday from the 128th Air Refueling Wing that included our founder, Paul Poberezny. That prompted a friend of ours named Heather Dykema to write and send us this photo, another great glimpse into the past! "I saw the photo you posted today from the 128th. That was my dad's unit for many years and attached is a photo of Mr. Poberezny with my dad, Malcolm Russell (2nd from right), as well as two other guard members. I don't know who is in the pilot's seat and the photo wasn't dated."
