The power of U.S. military aviation will be on full display at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh this year, with every branch displaying notable aircraft during the weeklong event.
At the 70th fly-in convention, modern military aircraft will be on display. The Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command will be a highlight of the military representation this year. EAA released the current lineup of modern military aircraft to be displayed.
The list includes F-15s, a C-17 flying hospital, a V-22 Osprey and a C-130. These are the aircraft that have helped to develop the U.S. Air Force personnel. The Air Education and Training Command is the oldest major command in the Air Force. The Command was established in January 1942 and its mission makes it the first command to impact nearly all Air Force members. More than 25 million students have graduated from the AETC training and education programs.
The other aircraft on display include some notable aircraft from each branch, adding a modern look at military aviation next to the many classic warbirds on display every year.

Most of these aircraft can be found on display at Boeing Plaza, the center aircraft display at AirVenture.
“The U.S. military has a vast array of aircraft, as every mission is unique,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programs. “That variety will be on full display at AirVenture as every branch brings something unique to the event.”
