    Default Oshkosh 2020 is closed

    Hi,

    I know some have thought about hopping into Oshkosh in late July for a look around. The airport is running normal operations, but the EAA is announcing their grounds are closed. Any arriving aircraft will be directed to the FBO parking on the North edge of the field. No pedestrian traffic allowed elsewhere, and no camping anywhere.

    I was in Milwaukee a few years back non convention time and drove up and drove around the empty grounds. It is really different. Kind of eerie.

    I picked up an airplane project at Oshkosh some 20 plus years ago and thought the exact same thing.

    Interesting perspective. We live outside Chicago and have been to Oshkosh plenty of times outside of Airventure. Itís kinda nice.
    You can pull right into the airplane parking at the Hilton and you feel like a baller

    You’re about my age so now I don’t feel bad because I didn’t know what it meant.
