Once A Year This Wisconsin Town Has The Busiest Airport In The World

Wisconsinites may have heard of the EAA – Experimental Aircraft Association – but did you know they host one of the world’s premier aviation events in Oshkosh?

What started as a small gathering of hobby airplane builders and enthusiasts at Milwaukee’s Timmerman Field, as part of the now defunct Milwaukee Air Pageant in 1953, has grown to include more than 10,000 planes and 500,000 attendees over a week in July.
