We board our air-conditioned luxury coach at 10:00 for our drive north to Oshkosh, Wisconsin. We will make a stop at the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee; time to enjoy a tour (Museum tour cost is included) and/ lunch in their café. (at your own expense). At 14:00 we depart for Oshkosh.
Later that afternoon (approx 16:00) we arrive at the University Wisconsin (UWO) in Oshkosh and check in to your room at the Horizon Village; we stay 7 nights in air conditioned suites (with high speed WIFI).
You have 6 full days at AirAdventure Oshkosh 2020 to enjoy the thrill and excitement at your own leisure. Each morning there are multiple streams of aircraft landing one after the other on both runways, plus demonstration flights of new aircraft.
In the afternoons at 14:30 the daily Airshow takes off, featuring antiques, classics and new types and military aircraft. On several days there are specially extended Airshows featuring Warbirds – with lots of pyrotechnics including the awesome, mile-long ‘Wall of Fire’! You will see two night airshows, Wednesday and Saturday.
You can catch a shuttle from the crowds on Wittman Field to the relative peace and quiet of the wooded shores of Lake Winnebago, and the beautiful floatplane base which is home to the EAA’s “Splash-In”. You can see 100 or more floatplanes ranging in size from small Cessna’s and Cubs, to larger types like the Grumman HU-16 Albatross, Catalina, and even a rare Piaggio. Relax in the shade; enjoy a drink, a BBQ or sandwich. Jump on board the electric boat for a tour around the anchorage. Most days pleasure flights are available!
This morning our coach departs the UWO campus at 08:30 and heads south, en-route a stop will be made for lunch (at your own expense).
North of Chicago is the town of Kenosha; at the airfield is one of “Sanders Aeronautics” restoration facilities. This company is famous for restoring warbirds – especially Hawker Sea Fury’s! We hope to be given a short tour, (visit to be confirmed); if it is we may depart the UWO slightly earlier).
