Hello everyone...I wanted to share some experiences of my visit to the EAA Oshkosh "Airventure" show last week. I only live about two hours away by car, so a fairly easy trip for me.
Cutting to the chase, there was only one
plane there that fit the WWI era this year (that I could find anyway). It was a nice replica of a Bleriot XI:
I met the custodian of this aircraft, and he mentioned that there about five Bleriot replicas at a small, country airport just a few miles from where I live (he called it "center of Bleriot activity in America")...neat-o!
I was disappointed in the lack of WWI representation (last time I went a few years ago, they had many WWI replicas, and the person in charge of displaying the Bleriot confirmed this), but lots of other cool things going on, mostly WWII and later.
