EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Warbirds - Attack Aircraft

The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with this look at warbirds considered to be in the attack aircraft category. Here we feature a generational evolution of the strike/attack aircraft with examples from the World War II and Vietnam War eras: DeHavilland Mosquito FB Mk.VI, Douglas A-1H Skyraider and Douglas A-4C Skyhawk. Ground attack and close air support of ground troops remain crucial missions for combat success, performed today most notably by the A-10 Warthog.
