EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012: Aerial Tour In a Bell 47G
By Fred Harl
A great way to see the "big picture" of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is from a ride in the EAA's Bell 47G over the Airport. For a reasonable price, and after waiting in a fairly short line, one can get a commanding view of the thousands of aircraft participating in "The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration." Of course from the air you can get just a fleeting glimpse of the immense expanse of planes, campers, cars and wandering plane nuts. If offered again next year, it is highly recommended.
