EAA AirVenture Celebrates the Year of the Fighter

Flight enthusiasts and aviation industry professionals have touched down in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for one of the year’s largest annual events.

EAA AirVenture has returned to Oshkosh for the 50th year.

This year the conference will highlight military craft among other planes, including the F-15, F-18, F-22 and F-35. Apollo 11 command module pilot Michael Collins is this year’s featured guest, 50 years to the week since the first moon landing.

The show will also include the flight of a plane that flew during the invasion of Normandy, which will have its 75th anniversary honored this week.
