Wittman. Field. Video.


AirVenture 2020 was canceled, which made Oshkosh’s Wittman Regional Airport a very quiet place in late July. If it was strange for you to stay home, it was equally strange to be nearly the only person there. No fireworks or explosions, no thrumming warbird formations or ear-splitting military flybys, only a field waiting for our return. This video shows where we gather. If you need to remember why we gather, I try to answer that here.
