Second night air show added at AirVenture

A second night air show will be added to the line up at this summer’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Night air shows will be held Wednesday, July 31, and Saturday, Aug. 3.

“The additional night show is being scheduled this year in response to those EAA members and AirVenture attendees who said they missed this phenomenal event because they came to Oshkosh earlier in the week,” said Jim DiMatteo, EAA’s vice president of AirVenture features and attractions. “We talked with the participating performers and they’re just as excited to have an additional opportunity to fly the twilight show here as the thousands who have enjoyed it each year.”

The inaugural EAA AirVenture night air show was in 2010 and was an instant hit, drawing tens of thousands of people to the flight line for an unmatched display of piloting skill and dazzling light in the twilight over Oshkosh. All the afternoon and night air shows at EAA AirVenture are presented by Rockwell Collins.

Among the performers already committed to both night shows at Oshkosh are:

  • AeroShell Aerobatic Team (T-6s)
  • Bob Carlton (jet sailplane)
  • Matt Younkin (Beech 18)
  • Gene Soucy (Showcat)
  • Steve Oliver (Super Chipmunk)
  • Roger Buis (Otto the Helicopter)
  • Rich’s Incredible Pyro (pyrotechnics)

Each of the night air shows will conclude with a fireworks display.
