EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014: Otto the Helicopter
Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 continues with one of the most unique aerial acts in the country - Otto the Helicopter flown by Roger Buis. He puts the Schweizer 269C through a series of tightly choreographed maneuvers, trailing thick white smoke as he flies up, down, forwards and backwards. There are several comedy routines built into the show, and some venues include the spectacular night pyro performance. Great news has just been released: Otto and Roger Buis will be performing at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015!
