Aero-TV: EAA's Night Airshow -- Lighting up the Night Sky at AirVenture 2011

A Spectacular Way To End Aviation's Big Week

There are some things that are very difficult to describe. The night airshow which has capped off the last two years at AirVenture at Oshkosh is one of those things that almost has to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Fortunately, Aero-TV was there to capture the airshow on the final day of this year's EAA gathering. So what were some of the reactions we got from people who saw the show?

"It's just the coolest thing ever."

The show featured performances by the AeroShell T-6 Aerobatic Team, Bob Carlton in his jet sailplane, Gene Soucy flying the Showcat, and Matt Younkin in a Twin Beech lit to rival the brightest Christmas tree, along with Steve Oliver in his Chipmunk.

The performers flew through the night sky, some cutting through the darkness with bright lights, others showering sparks and fireworks as they performed their routines.

And then came a ground-based fireworks display to rival any July 4th show short of the National Capital mall. Hundreds of shells and mortars lit the sky, turning night into day, all capped by one massive explosion as the bombardiers lit off the kind of pyrotechnics usually reserved for the warbird re-enactments. While impressive during the day, it was even more spectacular at night.

If you're planning a visit to AirVenture in 2012, you might want to consider staying through Saturday night, and enjoying the show.
