OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - One of the world's largest aviation conventions goes into full swing Monday in Oshkosh.
The Experimental Aircraft Association's week-long Air-Venture Show takes place at Wittman Airport in Oshkosh.
Sunday, a short ceremony was held to honor EAA founder Paul Poberezny, who died a few weeks after last year's show at age 91. Poberezny's story will be featured all week at the EAA's Welcome Center for the hundreds of thousands attending the AirVenture Show.
The airplanes that circle the parachute team which opens the daily air shows will have a salute to Poberezny -- as well as a dinner tomorrow night for the EAA's lifetime members.
This year's highlight is a performance by the Air Force Thunderbirds, who will make their first appearance at Oshkosh thanks to an expansion of the aerobatic box which they use to perform.
The crowd line is also being adjusted to accommodate the Thunderbirds.
