Thanks! With that knowledge I think I will make the Thunder show. I'd kick myself if this was one of the last good gatherings of Corsairs, and didn't go!
I agree, it'll be my first Thunder and I only decided on it because of this reason. I do think there is good hope for another even larger gathering in the future. A handful of Corsairs that aren't attending Thunder this year could be part of a gathering in a few years. At this point I can think of 7 more that are all viable for the next gathering...

-VWOC's FG-1D after substantial repair
-John O'Connors -7 after repairs
-WHF's FG-1D when restoration completes next year
-The 2 FG-1D's for sale on Platinum fighters (well now 3 with the new -5 added, but it's out of the country)
-Dakota Territory Corsair once it's out of the ownership lock
-Cavanaugh's once it's finished with being refreshed

Thunder says their budget is capped this year, it would take a joint operation to get 16-20 Corsairs together...

I'd love to meet some of you during the week! I'll try to figure out a decent time for an AirshowStuff meetup and post here.

I"m new to the boards but I think that's a great idea.

Apologies for a brief deviation from talking about airplanes, but there's possibly enough overlapping interests and photogs who are always looking for a photo op that I figured I'd mention it here. The Union Pacific's just-restored Big Boy locomotive is going to be on tour through Wisconsin during the week of Airventure, and will be within reasonable driving distance from Oshkosh. I'm not quite sure if I can juggle fitting it in with work, weather, and a six hour road trip from Iowa, but the possibility of catching both the only airworthy Twin Mustang and the only operating example of the largest steam locomotive ever built in one trip.... Sure would be a fascinating look at the pinnacles of 1940's American engineering achievement. Link to their schedule.
