|Our view of the Oshkosh Airshow from a Bell 47 helicopter!|
Summer 2021 plans came together for our son and I to make the big trip to EAA Airventure in Oshkosh, WI. We had a grand time and I was so excited to show him this big aviation family reunion. My boys face when he saw all the airplanes parked on the field was priceless! I have been posting photos over on my Instagram feed so check our photo highlights there.
Also be sure to budget a good chunk of time to cruising through the EAA Flickr Photo Feed. Links below!
