The world's busiest airport is in Wisconsin

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

The busiest airport in the world is located in the small city of Oshkosh, Wisconsin (USA) ... for one week every summer.

I live in Milwaukee, 90 minutes from Oshkosh by car, and the skies were very active last week during the annual event: the Experimental Aircraft Association's Airventure Convention, the world's greatest aviation celebration.

For one week, 10,000-15,000 different types of aircraft fly in to Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, landing at what becomes the busiest airport in the world. There you'll see amazing air shows and find aircraft of all shapes and sizes, from WW11 fighter planes to the Concorde, from stealth fighters, to a flying car. Anything new, old, or experimental is there. This year a Swiss pilot thrilled attendees by soaring with a jet pack that he invented. Fantastic!

Usually beginning on the last Monday in July, this seven-day event attracts more than 500,000 aviation enthusiasts (including celebrities) from more than 60 countries. Maybe you could be one of them next year.
