EAA AirVenture Oshkosh

In response to our request for recommendations for places to see human achievements TIA Daily reader, Ed Thompson, writes:

"If you want to see human achievement, especially in the realm of engineering, all around you across the span of a mile or more, the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual Fly-In Convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin is for you. It’s on now through August 2. It’s where Burt Rutan cut his teeth. There’s everything from the Wright Flyer to the B-2, Stealth Fighter and everything in between. For a week, it’s the busiest airport in the world. There is always a bewildering array of aircraft on display. Notably, there is a proliferation of new light-aircraft designs, many of carbon fiber construction, that have advanced the art appreciably, as well as advances in avionics, navigation gear and many others."

"Today, EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is an international gathering place for aviation enthusiasts. An AirVenture participant can study the latest aircraft and innovations; discover new ideas and techniques from the more than 500 forums and workshops; see aviation's top personalities; or just
talk airplanes with people from around the world. EAA Airventure Oshkosh has become important and influential but retains its friendly and personal feel - part of the reason the world comes to Oshkosh every year."
