First, an apology for not letting everyone watching the blog know about the Perlan appearance at the Oshkosh airshow. It was only organised at the last minute and the blog was offline until almost the end of the show. We did try to get the word out on Facebook and Twitter but not everybody uses those.
The EAA AirVenture show at Oshkosh is the biggest airshow in the world. The number of aircraft and displays is absolutely incredible. If you spent 5 seconds looking at each aircraft or commercial display and ran between them, you would not see them all in a week. Fortunately for us on the Perlan display, we are just happy to see anyone stop by our display and ask us a few questions.The Perlan mockup has been a wild hit with the kids at the show. We have had hundreds climb in and out of the cockpit. I think we may have even inspired a few to dream a little bit bigger about a career in science or aviation.
