Warbirds at Oshkosh, Part 1

p47s

 

Whether you know it as the EAA Convention, as AirVenture, or by other names, the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) annual fly-in and air show at Oshkosh Wisconsin draws some eye-watering warbirds.

Today’s division of the EAA, officially known as Warbirds of America, began in the mid-1960s by a group of West Coast aviators who owned and/or operated World War II combat aircraft. Incorporated in 1966, Warbirds of America Inc., it became a division of the EAA the following year. Although combat aircraft was the original theme, soon North American T-6/SNJ/Harvard trainers were included and over the years, owners and operators of most surplus military aircraft have been invited to become members.

Here’s the first installment of a series of photographic reports of some of the aircraft that have attended.
