Final Day For Seeing AirVenture

Today is the final day for Oshkosh Wisconsin EAA AirVenture.  The last day is family day with special prices for families and anyone under 18 can get in free.  It is was an exciting week for those interested in aircraft of all kinds, but it will be nice to be able to go to Oshkosh and get around without the crowds.  Last night we attended a picnic our daughter and husband hosted at the airplane hangar they have.  We had a lot of good food, and then we were able to see some of the night airshow.  Although we didn't stay for the whole thing, it was amazing to see the planes fly in formations and do rolls and twists. We took my dad along thinking he may be able to see the show.  He has macular degeneration, and he has vision problems.  We thought the contrast of the night sky and the lighted airplanes would be easier for him to see.  He couldn't see them.  We felt bad for him and left early.  It is hard for me to photograph the planes with my equipment but here are a few highlights I was able to capture.









This was my favorite, the best little airplane and pilot of all.  My grandson Ewan.
