EAA AirVenture 2013
Each year aviation enthusiasts and avgeeks alike look forward to AirVenture in Oshkosh, America's largest annual gathering, and this July and August look to be shaping up for another great show. From a sneak peek of Disney's new animated feature Planes to a first public U.S. flight by Yves "Jetman" Rossy and musical performances by Chicago and Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band, there is a number of special events to be excited about. Monday opens up with a free concert for all attendees.
With up to 10,000 visiting aircraft, showgoers will be able to view a variety of interesting and unusual warbird and vintage aircraft, as well as homebuilts and ultralights.
