EAA Safety Zone
« on: July 27, 2010, 06:44:54 PM »
Just a reminder to everyone. With EAA AirVenture going on this weekend, there will be a safety zone on Lake Winnebago near Streich's for seaplane take off and landings. In the past it has been marked with large buoys and been patrolled by the USCG.

Remember folks, the giant spinning Cuisinart has the right of way.

I made a Google Map of the Security Zone to make it easier to locate.

Glad you guys have something like this up here to remind people!  I did a photo shoot a few years back from a USCG boat, water to air and water to water with a BIG tri-motor sea plane and there plenty of people who didn't care what the plane was doing, some even headed right in his direction.

lol...you and I are on the same wavelength.  I added this to the front and posted it to Facebook a couple hours ago, before I saw your post.

The fireworks show? How well can you see?

Last year we stopped on N almost by accident to watch and it was neat, planned on viewing it from the EAA grounds this year. If it's a good show from the boat, I may go that route...
