The huge airshow in Oshkosh, Wis., officially opened yesterday and by mid-morning, some planes were being turned away because there was no place to put them.
Flying into Oshkosh is pressure-packed for a number of reasons, not the least of which is tens of thousands of people line the runways to watch you land. You don’t want to mess it up.
Not like this pilot did yesterday when landing a 1940s-era A-26 Invader.
