Oshkosh 2015 Day Two
By the Pilot's Post Team
On day one Oshkosh 2015 experienced an increase in numbers across the board. Camping attendance is up by 13% whilst visitors number have increased by 7% and almost a 1,000 more aircraft arrived compared to the same period for 2014. This is good news indeed, not just for AirVenture but for the aviation economy in general.
Day two was one of the best day's ever at Oshkosh. The highlight of the day was the arrival of two F-22 Raptors. The Lockheed Martin designed F-22 Raptor is the result of the USAF's Advanced Tactical Fighter program. The single-seat, twin-engine, all weather stealth tactical fighter aircraft was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but has additional capabilities including ground attack, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence roles.
The afternoons show was dominated by Warbirds and the sky was filled with types to many to mention.
