Every year, aviation enthusiasts gather in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for the largest air show in the world. We attended EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 and it was incredible. Our weekly wristband allowed us to come and go everyday of the air show. If you attend, we’d recommend going for the whole week and make sure to check out one of the night shows.
Day 1 at EAA AirVenture
Watch a Boeing B-17, P-51 Mustang, Curtis P-40 Warhawk and the afternoon air show with Canadian Harvard Aerobatics Team.

Watch the air show from “The Ditch” and see the Grumman F8 Bearcat, P-51 Mustang, F4 Corsair, B-25 Mitchell, F-16 Falcon, A-10 Warthog, and various other planes and warbirds.
Day 3 at EAA AirVenture
Ventured over to the EAA Seaplane base to check out the world’s largest water bomber, the Martin Mars, aka the Hawaii Mars. While we were there, it did performed a water drop right in front of us. We also saw the Grumman G-21 Goose taxi across the water and take off.
