Featured at the World’s Largest Air Show!
In attendance at the 2017 EAA AirVenture Show was the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), sharing what makes Minnesota destinations unique, and why Minnesota is a great state of aviation. The ambassador MNDOT chose for communicating its message was none other than Bemidji’s beloved hometown heros, Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox! Guests attending the show were offered the opportunity to have their photo taken “flying” with Bemidji’s own Paul and Babe in MnDOT’s photo booth!
EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is an annual gathering of aviation enthusiasts held each summer at Wittman Regional Airport in Wisconsin. The event is the largest of its kind in the world held each July, attracting more than 500,000 people from five continents and 10,000 airplanes.
