On Friday, August 1, 2014, Senior Editor Michael Bakich and I trekked northward from the Astronomy magazine offices to spend the day at the world’s largest airshow, the EAA Airventure event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Aviation and space exploration are hand-in-hand at this fabulous festival, which featured more than 10,000 aircraft, more than 500,000 visitors, and a dizzying array of displays from the likes of NASA, Boeing, Grumman, and numerous other exhibitors.

If you like aviation and space and have never been to Oshkosh, I strongly suggest you attend.

I leave you with a smattering of images of standout craft —space planes from NASA, large military aircraft, and vintage planes from the past. (World War II warbirds are a major attraction at the show.) For all images, visit the Online Reader Gallery.

More interesting features of a summer in Wisconsin to follow later this week!
