Classic Aero-TV: The Nature of Airventure-A Unique Look at the Planes of Oshkosh

Aero-TV Takes A Creative Look At The Wilder Side Of Oshkosh

Sometimes, after a week of watching airplanes fly, they begin to seem to almost ... well ... begin to take on a life of their own. When videographers and writers start to look at airplanes in that way, strange things can happen.

We call our airplanes "birds." They have names like KitFox, Goose, BearHawk, and ... yes ... Cub. And at an event like Oshkosh they do gather, like all the different animals at the watering hole on the African savannah, for a brief time before moving on. There are the fragile, the small and agile, the large and ponderous, and the swift predators. The only difference is that their skeletons are mostly metal, their skins are fabric, aluminum, and carbon fiber, and their brains ... and hearts ... are human.

To the lover of aviation, our airplanes are a sleek, beautiful, and in many cases as odd as the things that are seen in nature. In the hands of a gifted videographer, and we have a few of those, they rival the beauty of nature, in our eyes at least.

And so ... with apologies to the producers of probably every nature documentary ever shown on television, here's our only-slightly-satirical look at AirVenture as it might be seen on Animal Planet. This is our slightly canted look at the Nature of Oshkosh.

Get Comprehensive, Real-Time, 24/7 coverage of the latest aviation and aerospace stories anytime, at aero-news.net. And be sure to join us again for the next edition of "Airborne" here on Aero-TV. Thanks for watching. See you soon!
