I’m fortunate to live within easy reach of the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) facilities in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Every summer, EAA stages AirVenture, the “Worlds Greatest Aviation Celebration.” Known informally as the “EAA Fly-In,” this week-long convention attracts over 10,000 private, commercial, and military aircraft and over 500,000 spectators from over 60 different countries. During EAA, Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh becomes the world’s busiest airport for one hectic week.
A major EAA highlight is the daily EAA Air Show. The Air Show features formation and stunt flying, military aircraft and battle simulations, and much more.
For the other 51 weeks of the year, attention shifts to the EAA AirVenture Museum adjoining the airfield.
In the Aircraft Galleries, you can experience this spectacular event.
