Many of the world’s top air show performers have already given early confirmations to participate at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011, July 25-31 at Wittman Regional Airport (OSH).
Among the highlights for the afternoon air show lineup in 2011 is a dual act featuring Chuck Aaron’s Red Bull aerobatic helicopter and Kirby Chambliss’ Edge, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team (pictured), Matt Younkin and his Twin Beech, and the Warbird Spectaculars. Also scheduled are the Airshow Aces featuring Gene Soucy along with Kent and Warren Pietsch performing an old style barnstorming act, as well as Team Chaos staging a modification of the Masters of Disasters act.
“Each of these performers work as a headline act at air shows throughout the country, but they come together at EAA AirVenture to make an all-star roster of the ‘best of the best,’” said Tom Poberezny, EAA and AirVenture chairman, who flew as a member of the Eagles Aerobatic Team and was named to the International Council of Air Shows Hall of Fame in 2009. “Air show performers are eager to fly at Oshkosh because it represents a major achievement in their careers, flying in front of the most knowledgeable and appreciative audiences on the air show circuit.”
The Night Air Show and Fireworks also return on Saturday, July 30.
