The Fun Fly Zone at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017
The Fun Fly Zone at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is home to all kinds of flying machines, from autogyros and helicopters to powered parachutes, light homebuilts, and the rugged mounts of the Valdez STOL competitors.
Stories to Tell: Spitfire Mk. IX
While any warbird brings some history along with it, this particular fighter, a 1942 Spitfire Mk.IX, brought more than its share when it came to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017.
Boeing YL-15 - Defying Physics
Boeing built two XL-15s as proof of concept prototypes and then 10 YL-15s for evaluation as they competed for the U.S. Army Air Forces contract for a new L-bird, a liaison aircraft. Boeing ultimately lost the contract to Cessna.
For many people who come to AirVenture, the Homebuilts area is their happy place. With a variety of types from seas of RVs to singular standouts, it's easy to see why.
