EAA AirVenture Oshkosh started with the near disaster of 13" of rain in the weeks prior to the show. The grounds were too soggy for many of the campers and planes and emergency measures had to be taken. The staff and volunteers rose to the occasion, though and ultimately the show as a success. This year celebrated the 75th anniversary of the DC-3 and 40 of them showed up. It was also a "Salute to Veterans."
