Oshkosh, one week a year, is a microcosm of the world... a massive group of small unique associations and groups all dedicated to a common cause... and doing their own thing in the process. From the Warbird gang to the aerobatic folks to the ultralight types to the folks that keep the Flightline running, it is an eclectic and delightful exercise in human interaction.
When we asked the POINT MAGOO group of volunteers why they brave the hot summer sun year after year to park airplanes and guard the flight line, they all said the same thing... duh, because of the AIRPLANES! Many of these volunteers are on their second decade of service to the EAA. Their annual reward is an up close and personal view of some of the coolest flying machines in the world.
At AirVenture its all about the airplanes, and without these dedicated volunteers, Oshkosh’s flight line would quickly grind to a halt. They herd thousands of aircraft safely through the maze that is Oshkosh. Everything from Starships to Pitcairn Mailwings, they get to see it all. Sounds like an experience worth a little sunburn!
