Hello everyone. Before I continue, I just want to congratulate everyone involved in the launching of Discovery. It's good to be back!

Ok. I just got home from Oshkosh, and I thought I'd share a few pics of our favorite private space ship. They didn't let us get very close, and I only had a disposable camera, but hopefully these can hold you over until someone else can provide some quality shots. Oh, for the record, IT WAS AWESOME!

Here I am in front of my new aircraft. (Is anyone buying that?) Here's a few more shots.

DUDE! I was on the other side of WK when you was taking those pics.

Didn't you love how we was able to get so close as to almost touch knights wings?
(note:this is a no-no at oshkosh airshow)

you got to theater in the woods? what did you think of Rutans reply to Sirs what;s his name saying space ship two will be ready to fly in 2008?

They&#39;re not the only ones to feel jealous&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; How I would have liked to be there & UP SO CLOSE&#33;&#33;&#33; WOW&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

I put a few photos of SpaceShipOne on my web page - under Space craft - but none are so up close as the ones you took, tiderider&#33;

Thamks for posting them here & sharing them with us all at UT&#33;&#33; :D

my pictures are closer (not yet scanned in)

minolta x-370, 200mm zoom lens, distances from 20ft to 4 ft, depending on what details i was looking for.

not really awe inspiring pictures, but more of a technical nature.

I love the one I got where my hand is point to some of the screws on an access panel on white knights underside.
