Good fortune played a small part, but I know that it was extra effort by everybody participating in AirVenture that led to a totally incident free week. There were no accidents at or near Wittman Field, or even around the country involving pilots on their way to Oshkosh. The weather covered the usual range of summer possibilities, including thunderstorms, drizzle, heat, low clouds, and, early in the convention, spectacular weather with crystal clear skies and highs in the 70s. If an excuse for a mishap had been needed, the weather could have provided it. But the best efforts of the EAA, FAA and all of the pilots who participated meant that Oshkosh didn't attract a single negative story.
