July 31, 2009 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin  - Wednesday, Chicago’s O’Hare International logged approximately 2,300 aircraft operations; down south, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson, the world’s busiest airport, averaged more than 2,400 ops.

Compared to Wittman Regional this week those places are slackers.

On that same Wednesday the tower at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh handled 3,223 operations – and that is a 9 percent increase over the Wednesday of EAA AirVenture 2008.

But there’s more.

The Oshkosh tower numbers don’t include the hundreds of ultralight and helicopter operations at AirVenture.

Now, anybody out there doubt that Oshkosh is the busiest airport in the world?

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
