EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: Boeing Centennial Plaza Sampler

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo Centennial Plaza was the center for static aircraft displays at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 (outside of the Warbirds Area, featured in another story).  Aircraft were added and removed from the plaza daily according to their availability for public display, so visitors seeking a close-up look were wise to visit the plaza several times a day to find new arrivals. 

Boeing Centennial Plaza featured these highly-anticipated aircraft displays, including:

U.S. Coast Guard Aviation Centennial represented by Dolphin, Jayhawk, Ocean Sentry, Super Hercules and Albatross

Gulf War aircraft represented by the A-10C Thunderbolt II, F-15C Eagle, (Q)F-4E Phantom II  

Large Aircraft included a C-5M Super Galaxy, FedEx 767 and Cathay Pacific 747

There were more aircraft rotating through Boeing Centennial Plaza.  Check back soon for more in-depth coverage!
