Record-Setting Year For EAA AirVenture

(Oshkosh) It was record setting week for EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh. Board Chairman Jack Pelton says attendance was up five-percent from last year with 625,000 visitors for last week’s event at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh. Camping attendance was also up about five-percent and exhibitors were pleased with some saying sales were up as much as 50-percent. Rainy weather early on presented what he called a “tremendous challenge,” but Pelton says their 5,500 volunteers were able to meet that challenge.
