Say Hello To The Dorceys!
With the final days before the official start to EAA AirVenture
2006 counting down all too rapidly... and, not quickly enough...
ANN's senior staff is all-too-aware of the Herculean task ahead of
us in reporting EVERYTHING that's news at The World's Greatest
Fortunately, this year we'll have some help... and some really
GREAT help at that. As we've already told you, Aero-News is
bringing its largest staff EVER to AirVenture this year... and over
the next several days, we thought we'd take the time to introduce
you to the staff members -- both full-time, as well as our
"stringers" -- who will be bringing our readers and listeners all
the news that's fit to pixilate from Oshkosh this year.
And now, without further adieu...

Management Association's Blue Light Award, for excellence in
reporting Wisconsin aviation news. Rose serves as president of the

John, an Air Force Veteran, is an Aviation Consultant with the
Wisconsin Department of Transportation's Bureau of Aeronautics. He

airworthiness inspector. John has a cavernous interest in aviation
history and is a board member of the Wisconsin Aviation Hall of

Oshkosh for several years.

days to come!
