AirVenture Oshkosh: Day One

The big story today is Cessna revealing their new Light Sport concept aircraft. Cessna entering this new field will add even more credibility to the exciting LSA area. There was a big crowd around the plane, which they had covered with a black cloth until the moment of the announcement. I'll go back later, when things have thinned out, and get some pics to post here.

Cessna also teased the crowd by having a suprise fly-by of a new, also concept, plane that will apparently compete in the 4-6 place, piston market. That plane is so new that they aren't gonna have it on the ground here. The fly-bys were we got.

UPDATE: Here's a pic of the new Cessna
