Virtual AirVenture 2020 - A decade of Seaplanes & Ultralights

By Willie Bodenstein and Juri Keyter

Seaplane Base

Situated only about 15 minutes by bus from Oshkosh on the shores of Lake Winnebago, the Sea Plane Base is a haven of tranquillity giving one a much needed break from the hustle and bustle at Wittman Field. For us South Africans, seaplanes are a rare sight indeed and it is a wonderland of floatplanes and amphibians of all shapes and sizes that we have visited at least twice in subsequent years.
