The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) will showcase many of the nation’s top military aircraft on display and flying during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018.
EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, the 66th annual fly-in convention for the Experimental Aircraft Association, is July 23-July 29 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. EAA is dedicating this year as the Year of the Tanker, saluting aerial refueling aircraft used in the military. It is also the 70th anniversary of the United States Air Force Reserve and its citizen airmen.
Three tankers will be on static display and flying during AirVenture, including a KC-135R, a KC-10, and a HC-130N. All three aircraft perform aerial refueling for other military aircraft in the U.S. Air Force, with the HC-130N refueling for both the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Coast Guard.
Other aircraft that will be on both static display and flying during AirVenture include a B-1B, a C-5M, a C-17, an E/A-18G, an F/A-18F, and a HH-60G Pave Hawk.
Aircraft that will be on static display during AirVenture include an F-5, an F-15C, an F-16C, a C-12F Huron, an AH-64 Apache, and an MH-47 Chinook. An E-4B flying command post will also be featured during AirVenture with fly-bys.
