The XP-82 underwent high-speed taxi tests yesterday. First flight is close. Test flights and building up the required hours still need to happen before Oshkosh. It's going to be close.

Wow, that is quite an update! it should be quite the air display even if they only get a fraction of what is advertised. I was a little disappointed that it looks like I will miss the Airbus A220 and the Honeywell 757 on Monday-Tuesday, but Saturday's show should more than make up for it.

All of a sudden I'm kicking myself for not being there later in the week. The Saturday military lineup looks awesome. Monday - Wednesday should still be fun though. Would be great to see the XP-82 and Tigercats in the air!
