Day 6 – Night airshow

On the last day of the EAA Airventure in Oshkosh we were all looking forward to the night airshow. I had footage of one on TV before but never in real life. They attach fireworks to the wings of the aircraft and they fly their usual aerobatics display with what looks like a trail of stars behind them, it was definitely a first for me and amazing to watch.

There was also a massive fireworks display after the show and another ‘wall of fire’  which was hard to capture at night but you can see the silhouette of a plane in the lingering smoke from the 1000ft long firewall that exploded across the runway from us. What a fantastic way to end off the Oshkosh Airventure experience.
