WATCH: Two B-29 Superfortresses Flying Together For The First Time In Decades!

Double Trouble!

What’s better than a flyover from a B-29 Superfortress? The obvious answer is flyovers from TWO B-29 Superfortresses! AirVenture 2017 was an exciting week for many reasons, but this just may be the best reason of all. For the first time since 1960, there were two airworthy B-29 Superfortresses sharing the skies, and the AirshowStuff.com crew was there to capture this historic moment.

Although “Fifi” has ruled the airshow circuit as the only flyable B-29 for years, “Doc” became airworthy in 2016 and completed test flights in 2017. Attention immediately turned to the first time these aircraft would meet each other, and there was little doubt it’d be in Oshkosh. The two ultra-rare warbirds flew together several times during the week, ultimately flying in close formation together along with numerous other historical and modern bombers for an absolutely astonishing joint flyby!

WATCH: B-1B Lancer Oshkosh Arrival And Flybys

The Bone Enters With Authority!

With the focus on bombers at this year’s AirVenture, the Rockwell B-1B Lancer was a hit with airshow spectators. Nicknamed the “Bone”, the B-1B is an awesome sight to see as it rolls inbound toward you. In this video, the AirshowStuff.com crew gives you that sight, along with many other views of this sleek swing-wing bomber as it arrives at Oshkosh for the week. Using the callsign “Hawk 8-3”, the Dyess Air Force Base-based Lancer performs several flybys, giving the crowd a great view of the wings, both swept-back and fully extended. The thunderous roar of the engines and the powerful sight of the Bone make this a great video to watch!

WATCH: A-10 Warthogs Attack The Oshkosh Airport At Dusk!

Hawg Attack!

The twilight airshows at AirVenture are one of those “not to be missed” events. There’s just something about that time in the evening when the sun has gone down, but it’s still light enough out that makes for some spectacular scenes. It’s a favorite among airshow enthusiasts, and just in case you weren’t able to make it, or if you want to see it again, the AirshowStuff.com crew is bringing you a replay of the Saturday evening A-10 Warthog Demo. You get to see two A-10s from the 122nd Fighter Squadron of the Indiana Air National Guard, known as the Blacksnakes, do what Hawgs do best, and that’s bomb and strafe things! Assisted with pyro by the famous Tora Bomb Squad, this demo is an awesome sight!

WATCH: Rare Joint Flight Of NASA T-38 And NACA P-63 Honors Legacy Of Flight Testing

The History of Aeronautical Exploration!

There’s no end to the types of aircraft that you can see at AirVenture. If you look in any direction, you can see everything from homebuilts to the latest military hardware. This year, a unique duo took to the skies of Oshkosh during Sunday’s airshow for a display that’s both rare, and a treat to watch. Representing the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, a NASA T-38 Talon takes to the skies and shares the airspace with a National Advisory Committee of Aeronautics P-63 Kingcobra wearing special Test markings. Although the aircraft didn’t fly in close formation, their joint passes offered a special tribute to pioneers of science and technology both past and present. It’s a unique combination even for AirVenture!

The P-63 was also part of a different special flight during AirVenture; a formation of three P-63 Kingcobras, approximately half of the flyable examples in the world!

WATCH: F-22 Raptors Arrive In Oshkosh With Vapor And Afterburners!

Raptors Roar Over Oshkosh

There’s nothing quite like the sight of an F-22 Raptor pulling a tight turn and squeezing the moisture out of the air with vapor rolling off the wings. In this video, the AirshowStuff.com crew proudly brings you the arrival of two US Air Force F-22 Raptors to EAA AirVenture. There’s no doubt the F-22 is one of the world’s most advanced fighters in the air today, with thrust vectoring and stealth capabilities. Who can resist the powerful roar of the two Pratt and Whitney F119 engines as the Raptor flexes its muscles and thunders past?

In this video, you’ll get to see these stars of the USAF perform multiple low approaches and flybys. See the afterburners kick in and the heat from the engines as the Raptors bank away, not to mention that awesome vapor flowing over the wings and fuselage. We hope you enjoy viewing this video as much as we enjoyed making it for you. So put on some aviators, put it on full screen, turn up the volume, and revel in the awesomeness of these F-22 Raptors at AirVenture!

WATCH: AirVenture’s Bomber Day Features Rare Modern And Vintage Bomber Formations And Flybys In Oshkosh

The Heavies Are The Stars At AirVenture 2017

2017 will forever be known as the “Year of the Bombers” at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh – and with good reason! With the memories of last week’s spectacle of aviation still fresh in our minds, the AirshowStuff.com crew is proud to present this video containing all of the major bombers that made an appearance at #OSH17. This video has something for every lover of the mud movers, from the only two flying B-29 Superfortresses “Fifi” and “Doc”, to the high-tech B-1B Lancer and B-2 Spirit. And let’s not forget the venerable workhorse of the bomber fleet, the B-52 Stratofortress.

Visitors were treated to multiple flybys, including a rare Bomber Triad flyover that included all three current USAF bombers in formation, plus static displays of the B-1B, the B-52, a re-enactment of the infamous Doolittle Raid including twelve B-25 Mitchell bombers, and both flyable B-29 Superfortresses on the ground and in the air. This video is sure to get your blood pumping and your adrenaline flowing. You’ll hear the scream of the eight Pratt and Whitney TF33 engines of the mighty B-52 as it roars overhead, and you’ll feel the rumble in your chest from the eight Wright Cyclone radial engines of both B-29s as they pass by. Check out the afterburner action of the B-1B as it rolls in at high speed with wings swept, heading straight for you! And who could forget the stealthy B-2 Spirit as it gracefully sweeps by, prominent bat-wing design on full display. This video has just about everything a bomber fan could love so sit down, strap in, and set your video player to 1080p so you can truly enjoy this awesome display of sheer firepower!
