EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: Airshow Performers - Vicky Benzing
Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience begins our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 Airshow Performers by featuring Vicky Benzing flying her beautiful red Stearman trainer. Based in California, Benzing performs in airshows with her Stearman and Extra 300S, but that is just a part of her aviation career. She also holds commercial, airline transport pilot, helicopter, seaplane and glider ratings, and is an avid skydiver and jet racing pilot. She holds a PhD in Physical Chemistry and worked in the high-technology industry in Silicon Valle. We salute Vicky Benzing as she brings her Stearman airshow to the Midwest.
