The Aero Experience will wrap up our year-round coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015, sponsored by Air Associates, with a series covering the many warbird types seen during our ten days on the grounds. We will present the warbirds in their eras of service, roughly parallel to the major conflicts, including the Cold War, in which they served. Most of the aircraft were produced during the covered time period and served in some military capacity in combat or non-combat roles, and others were representative of the type but are replicas or civilian equivalents.
This feature will include trainers from the Cold War period that helped produce pilots and other crew members from America's friends and foes. Included here are the Aero L-29 Delfin, Aero L-39 Albatros, DeHavilland DH115 Vampire, DeHavilland DHC-1 Chipmunk, IAR 823, Nanchang CJ-6, Yak-52, Pilatus PC-7, Scottish Aviation Bulldog, Siai-Marchetti SF260 and Siai-Marchetti S.211.
