EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013: Holy Airshow, Batman - The Batmobile and Batcopter!
Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo
The EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013 airshow featured iconic entertainment from an earlier generation - the Batcopter from the TV series and original movie and a 1966 Batmobile replica - from the Nock Entertainment Group. The Batcopter, a 1964 Bell 47G, was restored by Eugene Nock (Captain, ATP) and is made available for events with the Batmobile. Nock Entertainment produces a variety of themed entertainment, including the Batman "Carnival of Chaos," the Helicopter Trapeze Extreme Team and FMX Freestyle Motorcross, among others. We were fortunate to see the Batmobile on display and meet Captain Nock as well as a special guest you may recognize in the last photo.
