An event brimming with ‘Only at Oshkosh’ moments is being hailed as the best ever. Jay Selman flags up the highlights.
AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 was deemed the most successful in the organiser’s (Experimental Aircraft Association/EAA) history, bringing in around 601,000 visitors, almost 2% above last year’s record. Chairman, Jack Pelton, said: “EAA members and aviation enthusiasts attended in large numbers, even without the presence of a military jet team as we had in 2017. Our efforts to create unique attractions and aviation highlights across the grounds were incredibly successful. Attendance on opening day was the best in our history, as the vast majority of our guests came to Oshkosh early and stayed throughout the week.”
