The hangar doors have closed on Oshkosh EAA AirVenture for another year with over 500,000 visitors having passed through the gates. Gizmag's airshow highlights coverage earlier this week hardly scratched the surface of the 1000's of gorgeous flying machines on site, so here's a closer look at the sights on offer at one of the world's biggest aviation gatherings.

Oshkosh EAA Airventure 2014 saw visitors from 69 nations in attendance for the week long event.

"Attendance was up over 500,000 visitors this year with a total increase of five to six percent," says EAA Chairman Jack Pelton. "We had over 10,000 aircraft arriving at Wittman Regional Airport and other airports in the area."

Among those 10,000 aircraft were:

  • 2,649 showplanes in total (308 more than 2013)
  • 997 home-built aircraft
  • 1,050 vintage airplanes
  • 303 warbirds
  • 122 ultralights and light-sport aircraft
  • 91 seaplanes
  • 40 rotorcraft
  • 38 aerobatic aircraft
  • 8 hot-air balloons
  • In an effort to bring you a taste of this smorgasbord, we've complied a gallery of some of the vintage, aerobatic and military planes from the past 80 years that populated the airfield this past week. Enjoy!

    I would like to see an airline start up that offers travel in a variety of veteran prop driven airplanes. It would be a slower but much more interesting way to travel.

    The Oshkosh event has to be one of the most prolific for variety. I would love to go there one day and enjoy the static and flying displays. A unique airshow.

    Those are excellent photos. Some are very artistic. They are almost as good as being there.
    I think there was a small airline that used Ford Tri-Motors to ferry people to an island.
