General Aviation Camping and Parking Areas
General Aviation Camping areas and General Aviation Parking areas in the "North Forty" and "South Forty" locations reached near to their capacity, but no aircraft were turned away for lack of space at AirVenture 2022.
Showplane areas accommodated experimentals (homebuilts), warbirds, production aircraft manufactured prior to 1971, ultralights, and amphibian aircraft.
1,375 Vintage aircraft, 1,156 homebuilts, 360 warbirds, 137 ultralights, 87 seaplanes, 77 aerobatic aircraft, and 25 rotorcraft were accommodated and none were turned away for lack of space.
The traditional, annual storm arrived before the formal start of AirVenture 2022 and was followed by continued great weather throughout the week.
Thousands of "ghost airplanes" remain Wittman Regional Airport, traced in the grass by the footsteps of attendees. They will gradually fade, be covered by winter snows, and then disappear as the grounds recover and await the return of real airplanes in 2023. Hopefully, you will be back, too!
Next planned update to this page: 2023 - See you then!
