A Cessna 182 is sitting in the Cessna Aircraft exhibit space at Oshkosh, waiting for the Monday opening of EAA AirVenture 2012 and it is not all that mysterious. First of all, it says “Turbo” in bold black letters on the aircraft. So it is a turbo something. After that, experts in the installation of diesel engines say it is obviously an SMA diesel engine that will now be offered in Cessna 182s. However, we won’t know for sure until the masking tape and paper masks come off Monday. So act surprised, OK?

Even when the new tunnel under the Gibraltar runway is completed, pedestrians and emergency vehicles will continue to stop air traffic and use Winston Churchill Avenue above ground to cross it. In the past it could take 10 minutes to clear people and traffic off the runway so an aircraft could land. The tunnel will be an improvement. This shot was taken by world traveler Robert Gannon after landing in his Cessna 182, and those tiny dots on the runway are traffic and people. The Gibraltar Airport is 1,600 feet from the city, the shortest commute of any major airport in the world. CLICK PHOTOS TO ENLARGE

Gannon moves his 182 from place to place until duties call him home, and then returns to continue his adventure. CLICK PHOTO
