Last month I attended AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I brought back some video. This is the first of the series.
During the week of AirVenture, Oshkosh Wisconsin boasts the busiest airport in the world. After being there for a week, I don’t doubt it. Every moment of the day there was two or three aircraft landing or taking off – very often, at the same time. Then, every afternoon there is an air show overhead.
While everyone was looking at the cool airplanes, I spent my time wondering the floor of the hangers on the lookout for cool stuff.
In this episode I take talked with a few vendors. Many of them were much shyer than you would think, and I had to improvise reporting on their products. When the vendor didn’t want to talk to the camera I’d hold the camera and do the voice-over right there. This worked for the most part, but this technique did capture a bit of background noise.
These are the vendors in this episode:
- Pacific Coast Avionics
- Factory Direct Models
- Kannad Aviation and Freeflight Systems
- Sportys and
- Martt from Airpigz and John from The In The Pattern Podcast
- ZD Publishing
