EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2007 photosThis was my first trip to Oshkosh. I was blown away by the scale of the event, how well it was organized, and did I mention the scale?
According to EAA, there were 560,000 attendees during the week. Oshkosh is a town of 62,000 people. More statistics from EAA:"Attendance at this year's AirVenture show was up about 3 percent over last year, EAA President Tom Poberezny said on Monday, with an estimated total of about 560,000 visitors. Other numbers included more than 10,000 aircraft that flew in to Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh and other nearby fields; 2,647 showplanes (985 homebuilts, 1,014 vintage airplanes, 365 warbirds, 136 ultralights, 117 seaplanes and 30 rotorcraft); 784 commercial exhibitors; and more than 38,000 campers. Reporting on all that news and activity were 887 media representatives from six continents." (Source: http://www.avweb.com/eletter/archives/avflash/925-full.html#195813)
