EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018: Warbirds - Fighters

By Fred Harl
More warbirds action from The Aero Experience coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018. Here we feature fighter aircraft from America's largest aviation event of the year. Represented here are the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk, P-51 Mustang, Chance Vought F-4U Corsair, Grumman F-7F Tigercat, Grumman F-8F Bearcat and the Supermarine Spitfire. Production of these aircraft during World War II and afterward were in the tens of thousands by prime and license contractors around the country. These and other warbirds are extremely expensive to fly, so we thank the owners and pilots for making them available to visitors during the week.
