You've seen, for
several years, what a great job our stringers, news-spies, and
helpers have done at a number of high-profile aviation
events. GREAT writers and photographers like Pete Combs, Juan
Jimenez, Kevin O'Brien, John Ballantyne, Aleta Vinas, Tyson
Rininger, and Rob Milford, as well as many other additional
supporters, have helped us gather information and wave the
flag for us at these shows!
Now, we're looking ahead to the big one: Oshkosh. A few of our
former stringers now work, full or part-time, for Aero-News...
others have created great opportunities for themselves as a result
of working with ANN. But... it's time for a few "newbies." If you
have always wanted to see this show "from the inside," and you can
write expertly and take photos, let us know. You might be able to
join ANN and get an inside view of the Greatest Airshow On/Over
If interested, please send samples of your stories and shots,
along with a little background, and tell us what your OSH
availability will be. You'll be working with the most energetic
team in aero-journalism, a group that goes where the stories are
and brings 'em back for readers all over planet Earth.
We work in shifts to cover the most ground, have time to write
it all up, and to digest the work in an efficient flow.
There'll be plenty of fun to go around, as we cover hundreds of
vendors and thousands of aircraft, pilots, and builders. What's
your specialty -- ultralights, warbirds, racers, tube and rag?
Great! You don't have a specialty (just love the whole shooting
match like we do, eh?)? Great!
We have plenty of needs, and there's plenty of aircraft and
stories to go around.
We will be examining a lot of your applications, and the process is
workload-dependent, so -- sooner is better!
We also need a high-energy "gopher" -- someone who can be
counted on to run the numerous errands, arrange some meetings, and
keep us up to date on whatever we may be missing!
