Did Someone Say Donuts?

Wednesday is donut day at the AirVenture Homebuilder's Headquarters, and those who build and fly experimental aircraft are never shy when free food is involved! Aviators from all across the country lined up to share stories and exchange information about their birds while waiting for the frosted and sugared delights of eastern Wisconsin.

It's a great way to start the day for those camping with their airplanes, with the sun coming up over scattered cumulus on the horizon. A good day to be in Oshkosh.
