OSHKOSH

Thanks EMBRAER for hiring me to do your customer event at Oshkosh. We had a good day at the worlds largerst airshow. It was amazing to see the thousands of small airplanes with people camping out under the airplane.  The Airbus A380 made its debut. I have seen the airplane before a Paris but folks were freaked at getting to see it. Airbus has opened it up for the public – probably with all the bad publicity they have had as of late is part of the reason.

We had a customer BBQ today at the client’s tent on the flight line. People really enjoyed it because the weather was amazing and the food was good.  I was blessed because the owner of the catering company knowing I am a food consultant UPGRADED us from disposables to china plates and silverware.  This was huge as people are junking all day on food and to come and sit down to have a proper meal meant the world to them.  I had a BBQ going that they could get some of the food directly off the grill.  I was watching the grill chef do BBQ chicken and he was taking the chicken off the grill and DUMPING it into BBQ sauce essentially drowning the chix in sauce. I told him not to do that and he said ok I will baste it which was taking that cooking paint brush and stroking some sauce on the food. This worked out 10 x’s better because it gave a taste of BBQ sauce which was very good by the way – vinegar based and if people wanted more BBQ we had it there for them to add on. People like  a little BBQ sauce to enhance the flavor of the meat the don’t need for the sauce to be primary while the meat is secondary.

Here are some pictures that I took today fo the airplanes.

A photographer walking by our stand told me to take this pic of the Airbus between the wings of the smaller plane to give viewers a point of reference at how big the Airbus is.

A full length picture of the Airbus - I think it is 2 - 747's stacked on top of one another. I know it hold over 500 people. And for luggage claim it goes on 2 different roundabouts.  Essentially if you are on top you are one flight number and the bottom part is a different flight number.
