Oshkosh 2008 is nearly a year behind us and the 2009 iteration
is LESS than a week away... So, while the images are still
pretty fresh in our minds (and on our video servers), we're going
to take a quick look over the daily episodes we produced at Oshkosh
2008 for the rest of this week, while our video crews get ready to
do it all again, and then some (yup, we're raising the bar again
this year... wait til you see what we have in mind for you!). We
hope you enjoy these programs as much as we enjoyed producing
The Goodyear blimp made a return visit
to Oshkosh this year, and Aero TV got an inside look at what it's
like to fly it.
A special effort was made by EAA at this year's event to
recognize and honor women in aviation. WomenVenture was a place for
women to congregate, and share their enthusiasm for flight.
Actor John Travolta is also an ATP-rated pilot. He was at
AirVenture to introduce one of his movies at Camp Scholler's fly-in
theater, and made himself available to answer questions.
Friday was Warbird Day at Oshkosh!
Join us next, for Aero TV's overview of the week at EAA
