Oshkosh day three-the official opening
By Willie Bodenstein
Being there early means that the crowds have not ar5rived yet offering some wonderful opportunities to view the classic Warbirds from up close.
AirVenture is not an airshow, it's a fly in for experimental aircraft and the category does included Warbirds. Every afternoon at 2.30 there are displays and the crowd line quickly fills up.
By the end of the show more than half a million people would have visited. The first display act was the dropping of Skydivers which whilst descending were circled by the Shell Harvard display team.
The afternoon display can last until after 7 in the evening, the sun only sets at about 8.30. The displays which include solo and team aerobatics will leave you in awe and one quickly realise that the Americans are in a league of their own.
