Known as ‘Bally’s Bomber’ the third scale B-17 that has been painstakingly crafted over the course of more than 17 years is now looking to make its debut at Oshkosh, this July 23-29. The Bally Bomber for the first time last November 14th, though builder Jack Bally originally envisioned the project to require some five years or so... The result is gorgeous....

Aero-News AirVenture Update: This Is So Cool! #OSH18COOL

We Need YOUR Help To Find AND Celebrate The Coolest Stuff At EAA AirVenture 2018, #OSH18COOL

Stuff that’s new is cool… we get it… that’s why we’re bringing our AirVenture Innovation Preview webcast to you on Saturday evening, July 21, to introduce the things that are new and unique at EAA AirVenture 2018. However, there is a lot of cool stuff that has little to do with being new stuff, but still deserves the designation of 'cool.' This is where we need your help. Despite the fact we have the largest news staff on the ground at AirVenture, our nearly 30 staffers still aren’t enough to find out what’s ‘really cool’ because what’s really cool is not all about us or what we think, it’s about what the thousands of people think who attend this great adventure known as AirVenture. To help us share what’s really cool to you, we are initiating our first time ‘#OSH18Cool’ program that allows you to tweet
