Every year at Oshkosh Airventure is impressive and special in it's own way, but I think this year's edition will be considered a favorite by many for many years to come and especially by Yours Truly. Due to several of the attractions, this was one of the most attended years Oshkosh has ever had. The U.S. Navy Blue Angels first ever full show appearance to this the "Greatest Aviation Celebration", plus the assortment of bomber aircraft and military specials brought a level of downright cool that will be hard to beat in future.
I scrambled around Friday (July 28th) and Saturday (29th) getting pictures and video of as many of the things that I wanted most as best as I could for the two days I was able to attend of the week-long event but there's more to see than can be seen and more to do than can be done in that limited space and time.
At least I bagged a few of my favorites here.
