EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017: Warbirds - Bombers

By Fred Harl 
The Aero Experience concludes our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017 Warbirds with a selection of bombers, featuring the Douglas A-20 Havoc, Grumman/GM TBM Avenger, Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and the North American B-25 Mitchell. The Douglas A-20 is from the Lewis Air Legends Collection, and is the only one currently flying out of nearly 7400 produced during World War II (mostly to equip Allied nations). Two Grumman (GM-produced) TBM Avengers are pictured, including the beautiful example owned by Brad Deckert.  The B-17G is the EAA's Aluminum Overcast, and the majority of the pictorial includes a variety of B-25 Mitchells in the Warbirds Area and the Warbirds portion of the daily airshows.
