ANN's 'Who's Who' At Oshkosh: Katherine Tryon

Introducing Staff, Stringers, Videographers, And People Who Make It All Work

Anyone who's ever been to Oshkosh knows that there are hundreds of events and activities as well as tens of thousands of people that descend (some quite literally) on Wittman Regional Airport in mid-summer. While we have a very hard-working and dedicated staff, ANN could not provide you with the extensive information we do without the help of some equally ... some might say more ... dedicated volunteers who give a week of their time to make sure you have the best possible coverage of the show. As we lead up to this year's edition of AirVenture, we'll be introducing you to the people that make all of that possible.

Happiest around aircraft, Katherine Tryon (pictured) spends a lot of her free time shooting aircraft, documenting storms for Skywarn or reading up on the classics of flying. Having her student pilot certificate, she has stepped up her immersion in flying lore, and has most recently flown an L-4 grasshopper.

Kat is most at home on a flight line, learning stories from veteran flyers and shooting pictures of vintage aircraft and warbirds. A WAI member and Advanced Skywarn spotter for National Weather Service, she is now on her fifth Oshkosh in a row.  You'll find her, camera or sketchpad in hand, near anything with character, history, and a story to tell; Katherine has a deep respect for those who came before, and wants their stories preserved and shared. Ask her about her her interest in aviation history and she cites: "the talent and the hard work it took to do so much in so few years..." she wants to see that legacy built upon, and guards it well.

In her daytime job, she is the funnel point for flight tracking and crew duty times for over three hundred aircraft operated by the nation's large flight school.  Recently selected as a brand ambassador by Subaru, the pace of keeping track of several hundred aircraft and pilots prepares her well for adventures with Roland, as they cover airshows and do technical photography of weather, Subarus and the outdoors. A fishing rod and headset is always in reach.

The more complex or challenging the task, the happier she is; with an uncle who was a superintendent on the construction of the Udvar-Hazy annex of the Air and Space Museum, and friendships across the top of aviation, she has immersed herself as much in the people, history and traditions of flight as she has embraced the technical future and digital present.

An avid cyclist and lethal angler, when not on storm chase, Katherine likes to unwind with art, digital media, and a photo shoot; frequently called upon for web projects, she enjoys applying her graphics skills behind the keyboard and her eye for aviation photography. This will be Katherine's fourth year on the circuit with ANN, she and Roland are hoping to add a taildragger to their lives to better reach far off  airshows, fish and friends.
