Time to start planning for Airventure
. It's July 27 - August 2 in Oshkosh, WI. If you have never attended... and have any interest in airplanes... you will be amazed! It is the largest aviation event in the world. So many people attend that the only way to stay in the area is to camp, and they have a huge camping area on the grounds.
Airplanes? We are talking about thousands
of airplanes - old, new, airliners, jet fighters, WW2, helicopters, light sport, seaplanes, aerobatic... it's quite a show. Also, many activities such as forums, music, films, museum, shows.
Last year I only saw about 3 Airstream trailers in the thousands of campers. We should be able to do better than that! Oshkosh is largely a celebration of aluminum!
Many people fly-in and camp in a tent by their planes. I own an old plane, but prefer to take the trailer to have a comfortable place to stay.
