EAA Airventure 2011, EAA AirVenture 2011 is home to a wide variety of naval aircraft, both historic and active duty in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, this week’s 59th annual march of the association at the convention celebrates the centenary of naval aviation. AirVenture will feature “Navy Day” activities on 27 July. The largest collection of naval aircraft airworthiness, ranging from the meticulous restoration and replicas of planes and helicopters today, presents the ConocoPhillips Plaza, and a special parking area called “NAS Oshkosh” which is just east of Scotts Warbird Alley.
Naval aircraft used today include several paint schemes of their predecessors, especially due to the centennial. More than 25 specially painted planes are scheduled to appear at AirVenture, including two T-45 Goshawks painted yellow wings, plans pre-World War II tactical aircraft, an S-3B Viking using the same colors as aircraft Marine who fought in World War II Battle of Midway, and an HH-60H Seahawk helicopter painted as an attack aircraft helicopter (Light) Squadron Three (HAL-3) of the Vietnam era.
“There’s no place where you can see a collection of aircraft of this size, representing all eras of naval aviation in the last 100 years,” said Tom Poberezny, EAA president of the former and AirVenture. “This epic event not only honors the heritage of these legendary warbirds, but men and women who served and sacrificed them.”
