PRESS RELEASE -Some of the world’s top air show performers have made commitments to fly at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021 – the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration – as part of the afternoon and night air show lineups.
Those performers include aerobatic champions and longtime Oshkosh favorites for the 68th Experimental Aircraft Association fly-in convention, scheduled for July 26-August 1 at Wittman Regional Airport.
