As you’ll read elsewhere, the arrivals leading up to Oshkosh AirVenture 2021 exceeded all expectations, and to be honest, expectations were plenty high to begin with. There was a little bit of excitement, but nothing more than bent metal, and there was a lot of noise of the military jet variety. After the longest wait between AirVentures ever, every decibel was like a symphony.
The military folks got to OSH early and had to help the proceedings get under way through an application of noise and flame. This F-15 was among the loudest and certainly the prettiest. The jet is here to mark 30 years since Desert Storm.
