Winged Migration

Having recently attended EAA AirVenture  in Oshkosh, WI, I thought I’d share some images. Originally known as the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Fly-In Convention, aircraft enthusiasts have been gathering in Oshkosh since 1953.

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, as it is now known, is one of the world’s premier aviation events, attracting government officials, corporate leaders and hundreds of thousands of aviation aficionados. It spans the spectrum of aviation and according to their website, attracts 10,000 airplanes annually. You might see anything from the Spirit of St. Louis to a Stealth fighter.

Over  500 forums were conducted by aviation leaders, NASA researchers, FAA personnel and aircraft designers. The exhibit buildings housed something for everyone, ranging from flight instruments and aircraft parts to insurance carriers.

And it’s not just the pilots that get a lift. With more than 500,000 attendees, the local and state economies land a 110 million dollar boost during the week-long event.
