Oshkosh-- Preparations are underway in Oshkosh for one of the biggest aviation shows in the world. It is just one week until EAA Airventure, and the grounds are already buzzing.
Campers have been flooding the campgrounds since the last week of June. Plane lovers like Rich largent say, getting to the show early is all part of the fun.
The set up takes weeks and requires hundreds of volunteers. Preparations are about 90% complete, but there is still much to do.
More than 500,000 people will be attending EAA Airventure to more than 10,000 planes that will continue to flood in this week.
Security measures are being set up on the ground and in the air to keep visitors safe. The show brings in more than $110 million dollars a year to Wisconsin.
