Jets and Helicopters Highlight Modern Military at AirVenture 2023

AETC Headlines Expansive Lineup of Modern Military Aircraft


EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (July 6, 2023) — The U.S. military will be represented in full force at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2023, as every branch is set to display notable aircraft at the week-long fly-in. The 70th edition of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s fly-in convention is July 24-30 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

The Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command will be the highlight of this year’s military representation. It’s current lineup of aircraft coming to Oshkosh includes F-15s, a C-17 hospital, a V-22 Osprey, and a C-130. These aircraft are responsible for helping develop U.S. Air Force personnel.

Air Education and Training Command is the oldest major command in the Air Force, having been established in January 1942. AETC’s training mission makes it the first command to touch the lives of nearly every Air Force member. Over the years, more than 25 million students have graduated from AETC training and education programs.

“The U.S. military has a vast array of aircraft, as every mission is unique,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programs, who coordinates AirVenture features and attractions. “That variety will be on full display at AirVenture as every branch brings something unique to the event.”
