Popsicles, swimming pools and sunshine… but if you love airplanes, nothing says summer quite like Oshkosh!

Many aviation enthusiasts point to EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin as the pinnacle of summer. People of all ages gather for the “World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration,” treated to a full week of dazzling airshows, workshops, entertainment and, of course, airplanes of all eras and varieties. Better yet? WE will be there!

The CAF Red Tail Squadron has been a fixture at AirVenture for some time, but this year we’re excited to be an exclusive part of their KidVenture programming! Sharing the inspirational message of the Tuskegee Airmen with kids is at the heart of our educational outreach, and KidVenture is a GREAT place to spread this important piece of history.

For families in the Oshkosh area, we welcome you to come visit the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit at AirVenture July 24 – 30. While you’re there, pick up one of our new Trivia Cards to earn your own dog tag featuring the Six Guiding Principles of the Tuskegee Airmen. Find us in KidVenture, along with a lot of other fantastic hands-on activities for young people to bring their dreams of aviation to life!

KidVenture is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We look forward to meeting you and having you check out the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit mobile movie theater. Be inspired by the legendary Tuskegee Airmen…. and watch your dreams take flight!


The CAF Red Tail Squadron is a volunteer-driven organization dedicated to educating audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel. Learn more at www.redtail.org.
