EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Warbirds - Bombers

The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with this look at warbird bombers. Here we include well-known bomber types from the World War II era: Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Boeing B-29 Superfortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator, Consolidated PBY Catalina and Douglas B-26 Invader. Of these bombers, the B-29 and B-26 went on to serve well past the 1940s in various forms during the Korean War, Vietnam War and Cold War decades later.
