Patrick McAlee Airshows ICAS Series, Part 2: Wednesday Visit to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019

By Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience continues our week-long series coverage of Patrick McAlee Airshows - ExtremeFlight at ICAS 2019. The annual International Council of Air Shows Convention serves to celebrate the end of one air show season and confirm performer schedules for the next one. Throughout the week, we will feature updated information on Patrick McAlee's 2020 schedule and the Pitts S-1GT Blue Demon. We will also feature his appearance at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, where he displayed his aircraft and visited with the crowds during the latter half of the week. 

In this edition, we feature views of Wednesday at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, with Patrick McAlee setting up his aircraft display and greeting a visitor just before the afternoon airshow began. We also feature scenes of WomenVenture, including the arrival of Natalia McAlee and other guests aboard the United Airlines Boeing Dreamliner. The participating women gathered for a noontime group photo, and the aircraft remained on display before departing later that evening. Also included here are representatives of Republic Airways, for whom Patrick McAlee flies, and Captain Tammie Jo Shults, former U.S. Naval Aviator and more recently known for safely landing her crippled Southwest Airlines jet in April of 2018.
