EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013: FedEx Airbus A300 and Grand Caravan

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo Corporation had a significant presence again at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013.  Shipping services were available during the event, and several aircraft were also available on display.  A Cessna 208B Grand Caravan feeder aircraft was on exhibit near the Rockwell Collins Exhibit Hangar C, and its big brother, an Airbus A300F4-605R arrived early in the week and remained on display for the day before departing following the afternoon airshow.  The Airbus freighter was parked on the Phillips 66 Plaza, dwarfing most of the other aircraft on display there and drawing a large crowd of visitors.  The aircraft's crew treated the crowd to a fly-by on arrival and a swift takeoff as it left to pick up its next revenue cargo load.  Here are some views of the Cessna Grand Caravan and the arrival, display and departure of the FedEx Airbus:
