Next week is the EAA Air Venture event at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Wittman Regional Airport becomes the world’s busiest for this short period, with thousands of movements and aircraft on site, from historic warplanes, to experimental aircraft, and the largest new airlines. Many people choose to fly their own light aircraft to the event, and arrival can therefore be quite tricky. Air Traffic Controllers naturally need to be the best you can get as it’s a very intense job. The FISK arrival sees pilots following railroad tracks from the town of Ripon, and then landing on an assigned colour dot on the runway so as to separate parking positions. Watch this excellent video showing the flight up to Oshkosh and hectic arrival.
