Each year at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, the Airplanista Aviation Blog hosts a social media “meetup” event called #Oshbash. It’s a chance for those on aviation social media — primarily Twitter — to meet each other and enjoy the kind of fun and camaraderie that erupts when the room is full of aviators that love technology and social media as much as they do flying.
