N711SH turned 3000 hours today during my Flight Review. I was so hoping for the 3000 hour prop tag at Oshkosh this year. Alas, not to be.

I feel you pain Bob, N18JF has been flying for 50 years this year and is really close to 2000 hours, was looking forward to two new milestone prop signs.

Congratulations. That is a milestone not many of us will reach. It is one of the nicer looking ones out there too.

Congrats! I have about 90 hours left until I get 78WG there, so hopefully I'll be right there with you collecting a 3000 hour tag at KOSH2021.
