Many of the world's top air show performers have already given early confirmations to participate at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2010 next summer. Second-generation air show standouts Matt Younkin and Kyle Franklin will appear, as well as yearly favorites like Chuck Aaron and his Red Bull aerobatic helicopter, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, The Collaborators featuring Sean D. Tucker, and the Warbird Spectaculars.

"Each of these performers work as a headline act at air shows throughout the country, but they come together at EAA AirVenture to make an all-star roster of the 'best of the best,'" said Tom Poberezny, EAA president and AirVenture chairman, who flew as a member of the renowned Eagles Aerobatic Team and last year was named to the International Council of Air Shows Hall of Fame. "Air show performers are eager to fly at Oshkosh because it represents a major achievement in their careers, flying in front of the most knowledgeable and appreciative audiences on the air show circuit. Look for even more top performers to be added to the list in early 2010."
The afternoon air show is an anticipated spectacle each day at EAA AirVenture, providing an exciting way to round out to a full day on the Oshkosh flight line. In 2010, the best elements of the daily air show and the "showcase" flying from previous years will again be combined to provide several hours of exciting and entertaining aerial entertainment.
Exact daily performance schedules will be finalized in the weeks prior to EAA AirVenture and will be announced through the event's extensive website at www.airventure.org.
"Each afternoon's showcase and air show create a daily attraction that simply cannot be seen anywhere else but EAA AirVenture," Poberezny said. "Oshkosh is the place where the airplanes, people and innovations come together each year in aviation’s family reunion."
"The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration," on July 26-August 1 at Wittman Regional Airport.
