Oshkosh Arrival Video

It is always important to keep your head up and eyes outside the cockpit when you are operating in and around busy airspace at major events like Oshkosh. This three ship of classic jets was arriving Oshkosh from the South for the Overhead Break to the right for landing 36L. 3 miles south of the airport at pattern altitude, lead noted traffic at 12 o'clock same altitude and called Oshkosh tower. There had been no traffic advisory from Tower. Tower said, "descend as necessary." Lead descended the flight 300' to 1200' agl. The B-17 bomber passed directly overhead. See the video at: B-17 Oshkosh.
