AirVenture Spared


As powerful thunderstorms rolled through Oshkosh last night, campers on the field readied for a wet and wild night, and those staying dry in hotels or rented houses worried about their parked airplanes. The worst of those concerns appear unrealized.

Paul Dye is on the field early and reports “no damage” that he’s seen so far. Our crew will be on site in an hour and will report back, but it appears AirVenture got a pass from mother nature.
