First there is a hum. A whine. The chorus grows until the air is filled with the distinctive sound of flight. They come by the thousands. Acrobatics. Vintage. Warbirds. Homebuilts. Ultralights. Together they will turn sleepy Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, into the busiest airport in the world. It’s time again for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
This celebrated annual reunion of planes and pilots takes off July 20th and runs for seven days and nights packed with films, forums, workshops, displays, exhibits, concerts, and entertainment. Daily airshows will again amaze and inspire with noise, smoke and fire. Survivors of long-ago battles will lumber overhead. The world’s best acrobatic performers will confound the flight line with their skill and nerve. Modern aircraft of today will inspire wonder about the future.
