OSHKOSH, WI — Get ready for a journey through 80 years of aviation and military history as Warbirds in Review returns to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2024. This unparalleled presentation series will run from July 22-28 at Wittman Regional Airport during the 71st edition of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s iconic fly-in convention.

Warbirds in Review offers twice-daily sessions, providing an “up close and personal” look at historic airplanes alongside the pilots and owners who know them best. These sessions take place on the Warbirds in Review aircraft ramp in the EAA Warbirds of America area and are open to all AirVenture attendees.

“Warbirds in Review brings together veterans, aviation legends, and unique aircraft that you won’t find together anywhere else,” said Connie Bowlin, past president of the EAA Warbirds of America and organizer of the series. “These veterans often downplay their heroism, but their stories are powerful, insightful, and essential for the public to hear.”
