This year, I had the chance to go to the Oshkosh 2010 airshow. It’s called EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) AirVenture, and it takes place every year and Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. What does this have to do with military surplus? Anyone who is interested in military aviation would enjoy this fun event, as there are several past military jets, warbirds, and other vehicles present.
Just so you can get a piece of the action I had, I’ll be doing a few articles on some of the cool military stuff I saw at Oshkosh 2010. The theme for Oshkosh 2010 was “Salute to Veterans.”
I recommend all readers who like aviation to go at some point in their lives since there’s much more than just military aircraft present. It happens every year in July/August and features hundreds of exhibits, an airshow every day, and the EAA museum. It’s geared toward people of all ages, and there’s even a special area for children called KidVenture. You can camp out near the flightline or get a hotel nearby during your stay. Be sure to find a time to go to this great aviation gathering. I was not disappointed by what I saw at Oshkosh 2010, and you won’t be disappointed whenever you go.
Watch for those articles on military aircraft I saw, and feel free to comment below if you’ve been to Oshkosh for AirVenture before!
