Trip to Oshkosh Starting at the Zenith kit aircraft factory in Mexico, Missouri on Saturday morning (July 26, 2008) our annual trip took to EAA AirVenture at Oshkosh, Wisconsin (KOSH) is about 400 miles (or 650 km.) away, which makes it an excellent day trip for the "low and slow" STOL series aircraft.
STOL CH 750 Day One: Mexico, Missouri (KMYJ) to Oshkosh (KOSH).  We decided to fly all three STOL aircraft together: STOL CH 801 (left), the new STOL CH 750, and the STOL CH 701 (right).
STOL CH 750 We had a late start due to fog and low level cloud cover...  The STOL CH 750 takes the lead, followed by the 701. 
We stopped briefly at Galesburg, Illinois (GBG), and again at Dodge County before flying the VFR approach into Oshkosh.

"The Zenith literature package is easily the most complete package I have received from any light aviation company, and I’ve seen many other good ones among the hundreds I have studied. Lots and lots of information is presented with some lovely graphics. The literature alone is impressive, but the volume of information will keep you reading for hours. You can get a good idea of what you're buying without ever leaving your chair."
