Bonanzas to Oshkosh (B2OSH XXVII) Formation Flight July 23, 2016
Each year in late July about 100 Beechcraft Bonanzas and Barons assemble in Rockford, Illinois and fly in the world’s largest formation of civilian aircraft, to the world’s greatest celebration of aviation – EAA AirVenture, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Bonanzas to Oshkosh began in 1990 when Wayne
Collins and a few friends decided the only way to ensure camping together
was to arrive together in formation.
For a review of our history, how it began and evolved, see
the B2OSH History page. The early
history is posted with Annual Reviews and articles dating back to 2001.
Wayne Collins led Bonanzas to Oshkosh until 2001 when Elliott Schiffman
took over the reins. During Elliott's tenure B2OSH established a nation-wide
network of regional training sessions. Organized practices led to ever
improving B2OSH flights and added a wonderful layer to the social fabric.
In 2007 Larry Gaines slid into the left seat.

Planes, Planes and more Planes. Every type of plane known, from the old war birds to the incredible Harrier! What an incredible event! B2OSH meets in Rockford, IL 2 days before the start of Oshkosh to...
Today our focus remains firmly fixed: pilots flying the best general aviation airplane camping together
in friendship and camaraderie. The formation arrival is our means of accomplishment. Our requirements
are membership in ABS and EAA and demonstration of basic formation competence in the preceding six months. We cannot
stress too strongly that this event focuses on friendship, camaraderie and a grass-roots structure. Especially
if you are a first timer, do not hesitate to walk up to any cluster of pilots and friends, introduce
yourself and join in. This is how friendships are made. We all have a common interest. If you are at
all hesitant, pick out a Staff member (bigger name badge) and he or she will introduce you around.
The camaraderie of the Bonanzas to Oshkosh crowd has led to other same-type mass arrivals.
B2OSH supports the efforts of the Mooney Caravan, Cessnas to Oshkosh, and Cherokees to Oshkosh, making the
North 40 a truly special place to be in late July each year.
