Top Air Show Performers Commit to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021

January 28, 2021 – Some of the world's top air show performers have made commitments to fly at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 — the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration — as part of the afternoon and night air show lineups, with more expected to commit in the coming months.

Those performers include aerobatic champions and longtime Oshkosh favorites. The event features nine air shows over seven days, including night airshows on July 28 and 31. The daily afternoon air shows are presented by Daher and Pratt & Whitney Canada, while the Wednesday, July 28, night air show is presented by Covington Aircraft.

"This is already an outstanding all-star air show lineup and we’re just getting started," said Rick Larsen, EAA's vice president of communities and member programs, who coordinates AirVenture features and attractions. "There is a particularly high energy among the air show community to get back to Oshkosh in 2021, whether it's returning performers, new air show acts, or particular aircraft connected with specific events and anniversaries."

Among the returning performers and aircraft already on the schedule include:

AeroShell Aerobatic Team (T-6) Nathan Hammond (Super Chipmunk)
Vicky Benzing (Stearman) Rob Holland (MX-2)
Jeff Boerboon (Yak-110 jet-assisted twin) Dell Coller (RAD Aerosports Jet Waco)
Wild Blue Rodeo (RV-8) Jim Peitz (Beechcraft 33C Bonanza)
Bob Carlton (SubSonex JSX-2) Red Line Air Shows (RV-8)

Kyle Franklin Comedy Act (Piper Super Cub) Patty Wagstaff (Extra 330LX)
Mike Goulian (Extra 330C) Geico Skytypers (SNJ)
Matt Younkin (Twin Beech 18) David Martin (Beechcraft Baron)

Along with these early confirmations, many more exciting performers will be announced, including some only-in-Oshkosh performers and aircraft. Exact days for each performer and complete daily air show lineups will be announced as they are finalized.
