Oshkosh isn’t just known for having hundreds of planes, tons of people, and way too much to see in one day. Oshkosh also has one great air show. It only lasts three hours a day but those three hours are jam packed with activity. Starting Monday the air show kicks off and one of the first performers are the Aeroshell T6 team. They are a very impressive team with some great acrobatic stunts.
This is the first team of T6’s to use smoke. The only other T6 that i have seen to use smoke was done at Gillespie Field this past April. The addition of smoke can make for great shots. With a blue background it’s great with a grey background like we had on Wednesday, not so great. Personally i like the symmetry to of the planes. Those great formations always make the planes seem more impressive. Then again it takes some good pilots to do that kind of flying.
This particular group were up a good twenty minutes which may seem short but is actually quite a while considering the amount of flying they are doing and the amount of fuel they are burning through. What will come next?
