AVIONEWS was present at the "Experimental Aircraft Association Air Venture", the largest gathering of aviation enthusiasts and "air show" in the world, which took place from July 22 to 28, 2019 at Oshkosh, in Wisconsin, with the presence of over 600,000 people at its fiftieth anniversary at the Wittman Regional Airport.
50 years completed not only from "EAA Air Venture" in Oshkosh, but also from the Boeing 747 to which an event was specially dedicated; and above all, exactly half a century ago there was for the first time the landing of man on the Moon: for the occasion "Air Venture" invited as guest of honor the pilot of the Apollo 11 Michael Collins
When Paul and Audrey Poberezny founded "EAA" in 1953 with the aim of bringing together people who built their own planes in their spare time, they had no idea that in a few years from now it would become the most important aviation show on the planet that has seen this year perform by history's most legendary American military aircraft, also the iconic planes of World War II up and the most sophisticated flying machines currently in existence.
Among the most significant events:
The flights with aircraft of the USAF air combat command, including fighters such as F-15, F-18, F-22 and F-35, as well as A-10 attack planes;
The presentation of the exclusive XP-82 Twin Mustang, which was restored in Georgia;
A tribute to the ace of the second world war Bud Anderson, with Air show of all the P-51 of the United States that have been summoned for the occasion;
