Warbird Alley's
Oshkosh AirVenture
2005 Photos

AirVenture is without a doubt the world's largest aviation event. Held each July in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA, this event is a must-see for aviation fanatics the world over. Warbirds are always a large part of the show, and we spent a lot of time photographing the action. Here are some glimpses of the warbird scene at Oshkosh 2005.


Heritage Flight at Oshkosh

The relatively recent advent of "Heritage Flights" has resulted in some throat lump-inducing moments at Oshkosh and elsewhere, such as this four-ship of fighters, old and new. Here, an F-4 Phantom, two P-51 Mustangs, and an F-16 Fighting Falcon make a photo pass over Oshkosh on Wednesday.
