AirVenture 2008 – Oshkosh, WI

I was able to get up to the EAA AirVenture event in Oshkosh this year for the first time ever.  I’ve been meaning to get up that way, but one thing or another came along and prevented me from going.  Well, this year, I took a Friday off and headed up – and I had a blast.

The day I went was the Warbird airshow. That means that all sorts of vintage, restored aircraft from WW II through Vietnam was flying during the airshow. The day was great – not too hot, and mostly sunny. There was a threat of a storm but that passed to the north. During the day I got to see a flyby by some F-15s and I got to see the F-22 in action. It is amazing how close you can get to some of the aircraft.

Anyway, enjoy the images. Leave comments if you feel like it. Also, check out the EAA AirVenture 2008 video page – I took some video with my digital camera. The quality is good, but a little bouncy – I didn’t bring a tripod. Enjoy!
