Why go?

This week long event has everything, attracting up to 500,000 attendees from over 60 countries. And with 10,000 – 15,000 aircraft visiting during the fly-in, Whittman’s control tower becomes the busiest in the world.

Check out displays of historic war birds, historic military aircraft and an assortment of authentic and replica aircraft from monoplanes to biplanes to triplanes. Be dazzled at the three hour spectacular afternoon air show, from early air racers to historical airplanes, along with the world's finest air show performers.  Then there’s the crowd-thrilling night air show featuring some of best aerobatic performers in a picturesque display, completed with a breathtaking ‘wall of fire’.

Delight in the thousands of homebuilt aircraft that are flown to Oshkosh, the AirVenture museum with over 200 historic planes, flight simulators and photo galleries, and hundreds of forums conducted by aviation leaders, NASA researchers, FAA personnel and aircraft designers.

Classic aviation films play at the open air Fly-In Theatre and nightly acts at the Theatre in the Woods. Not to forget the Opening Day Concert - previous headline acts have featured Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, The Beach Boys, REO Speedwagon, and Foreigner.
