Many of the world’s top air show performers have confirmed that they will participate at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2009, July 27 to August 2 at Wittman Regional Airport, EAA spokesman Dick Knapinski said on Dec. 30.
Among the early confirmations are more than a dozen women who will participate in special “Women Fly” air show activities on July 31 and August 2. Other invited performers include those with Canadian ties or aircraft to honor 100 years of aviation in Canada, Knapinski said. In addition, second-generation air show standouts Matt Younkin and Kyle Franklin will be there, as will the Red Bull aerobatic helicopter, which made “a spectacular debut at Oshkosh in 2008,” Knapinski said. Favorites such as Sean D. Tucker, Mike Goulian, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, and the Warbird Spectaculars will be part of the schedule as well, he said.
Performance schedules will be finalized in the weeks prior to AirVenture and can be seen at www.airventure.org.
