The evening began with an informal discussion as members gathered in the separate dining area for a delicious dinner of turkey and many sides and desserts. During dinner, photos of a variety of aircraft, exhibits and unique views of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 were shown, and an exhibit of a portion of the equipment used by The Aero Experience was on display. Following dinner, we took an hour-long photographic journey through the highlights of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016. The presentation was designed to illustrate not only the expected areas of airshows and aircraft static displays, but also the company exhibits, workshops, and unique media events that were unique to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016. Overall, the members expressed their positive response, and we will continue to make adjustments as we visit other Missouri Pilots Association chapters and other groups in the coming months.
