March 19, 2015 - For warbird enthusiasts, it doesn’t get much better than what EAA has planned for this summer’s 63rd EAA fly-in and convention, EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015, scheduled for July 20-26. Hundreds of iconic military aircraft will take to the sky for the July 22-25 daily air shows with themed performances commemorating the Battle Britain, Victory in Europe Day (V-E Day), Victory over Japan Day (V-J Day), and the Vietnam War from Wednesday through Saturday.
These newly confirmed warbird performances are updated slightly from what was previously announced. EAA’s daily air shows as well as the Wednesday and Saturday night air shows are sponsored by Rockwell Collins.
Starting on Wednesday, July 22, airplanes of the Pacific Theater of WWII will be featured, beginning with the return of Commemorative Air Force’s “Tora! Tora! Tora!” air show recalling the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor. Doolittle’s Raid, the Battle of Midway, and the subsequent island hopping campaign will also be represented.
The V-J Day tribute culminates with the world’s only flying B-29 Superfortress, the Commemorative Air Force FIFI. The Pacific theme returns for the Saturday, July 25, air show.
On Thursday, July 23, a special Battle of Britain 75th anniversary performance launches the air show followed by a tribute to the European Theater air campaign, featuring B-17 bombers, a variety of fighter and transport aircraft, and a Lancaster bomber.
The Friday, July 24, warbirds air show will feature the airplanes and rotorcraft that flew in Southeast Asia in the Vietnam War. And all the aircraft will be on display in Warbird Alley allowing for closer inspection.
