Re: Crazy OSH departures on Saturday
18 departures are side by side on the main runway only. If you line up on the left side of runway, then is 150 is your heading below 500 AGL to 5 miles, then you are on your own. Right side stays runway heading to 5 miles. Unfortunately, I was going off the left side and wanting to fly west after 5 miles, so I was pretty vigilant. The incoming planes are 1800 or 2300 MSL depending on speed, so I stayed at 2000 MSL flying west. RVSM anyone?

It seems most of the time I've had departures on 36L, which calls for a right turn before you get to the tower. Then follow the lake shoreline below 500 feet until five miles south, then you're on your own. They want you at or below 500 feet to stay below any arriving aircraft.

Below is a link to the video of OSH departures right after the field went VFR at noon on Saturday. Gives you a good feel for the pace of things, and also you can see how poor the visibility was. Just barely VFR. My takeoff is shown starting at 2:50 or so.
