More Flying than Ever at OSH16

June 15, 2016 - This year at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 we are packing even more fun into the week’s schedule with additional evening flying events. While long-time attendees are familiar with the Wednesday and Saturday night air shows, this year AirVenture-goers will be able to enjoy evening demonstrations throughout the week by both World War I and Valdez STOL aircraft. RC flying will also take place nightly at Pioneer Airport.

Monday and Thursday evening military biplanes and triplanes will take to the skies over Oshkosh as part of the World War I aviation centennial celebration. Aircraft from the collections of Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome of Rhinebeck, New York, and Golden Age Air Museum in Bethel, Pennsylvania, are scheduled to participate.

On Tuesday and Friday evening at the ultralight strip, attendees can get a taste of the popular Valdez STOL competition held every year in Alaska at the Valdez STOL Invitational competition right here in Oshkosh.

A condensed list of the evening flying schedule is as follows:

Monday—World War I demonstration

Tuesday—Valdez STOL competition

Wednesday—Night Air Show and fireworks

Thursday—World War I demonstration

Friday—Valdez STOL competition

Saturday—Night Air Show and fireworks

Keep an eye on the full schedule for additional details.
