An Oshkosh Miracle!!

On final for OSH runway 9! FISK approach dropped us in front of a Lear jet being cleared for an instrument approach. Before I could key the mike, the jet pilot acknowledged the clearance and commented that there was a "slow moving little guy" in the way. Since I resembled that remark, I couldn't take too much offense. A quick 360 allowed the jet to pass and we landed gently on the white dot. Luckily, the nosegear held and the plane and I were saved the ignominy of an abrupt stop in front a very large aviation audience.
