Weekly proudly begins its week long video
reports from the World's largest annual
aviation gathering - EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh,
For more than 50 years, the event has offered
the very best in sport, business and commercial
aviation. The first gathering was in September
1953 as a small part of the Milwaukee (Wis.)
Air Pageant. That original EAA fly-in at
Wright-Curtis (now Timmerman) Field was
attended by a handful of airplanes, mostly
homebuilt and modified aircraft. Fewer than
150 people registered as visitors.
Today's show features an attendance of
650,000 people coming from 70 nations and
some 10,000 aircraft from every state and
many other countries. More than 800 commercial
exhibitors and hundreds of aircraft are
on display as well.There's nothing like
it in the world -- It's part air show, part
trade show, part educational workshop. Welcome
to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh!
Our first video report includes a look into
a unique career path: aviation photography.
Join us as we talk with Larry Grace, a veteran
photographer who offers his insight and
suggestions on this exciting profession.
Over the next few days, AvjobsWeekly
provides you with streaming video coverage
from one of aviation's premier events!"
