In 2020, the COVID pandemic cancelled most air shows. Some, like Oshkosh, held virtual events. Some aviation museums are starting to reopen slowly. Hopefully people are busy in hangars restoring antique airplanes and readying them for when we can all get out and travel again.
It's no fun to be grounded when you want to fly and explore.
We have had a personal setback too, with some health issues slowing us down. We don't have the time to check on which venues are still viable and which are things of the past.
So... Post COVID our advice is to check with each air show or museum to see if they are open and operating. Stay safe.
We want to hear about your favorite airshow or fly-in.
There are so many great ones...
We want to hear about all of the great airshows and fly-ins all over the world for seeing antique airplanes.

Oshkosh is one of our favorites.... can you blame us?
There are other great shows.
Watsonville is practically in our backyard, so that was a sentimental favorite for vintage airplanes in the past.
England has lots of great airshows.... Duxford is exciting. We loved the flying days at the Shuttleworth Collection.
And in France at La Ferte Alais we saw planes we had never seen before... and it was the only airshow we've been to where we could go wine tasting at the same time!
Please share it with us.
