Video: F-16 airshow at Oshkosh

EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is one of the world’s largest fly-ins, but what makes it so special is the wide variety of airplanes on display. You’ll see everything from single seat homebuilts to the latest jets, and that includes the airshow. In this incredible video, you’ll ride along in an F-16 for a thrilling aerobatic routine that begins on takeoff. The video finishes with a heritage flight, when the F-16 and a P-51 Mustang fly in close formation.

John knows how lucky he is to go to work every day at an airport. As Vice President of Sporty’s Pilot Shop’s Catalog Division, he says, “I get to hang around airplanes all the time, flying regularly and testing new products for the catalog.” Coming from an aviation family, John grew up in the back of small airplanes and learned to fly as a teenager. Ever since, he has been hooked on anything with wings and regularly flies a Citabria, a Pilatus PC-12 and a Robinson R44 helicopter. Despite his love of low and slow flight, John says, “I love the challenge of IFR flying in the system. Seeing the runway lights as you break out on approach is a thrill.”
