Oshkosh was great fun, especially as I was there with a featured airplane crew, but I was quite disappointed with my photographic results. Lots of pretty airplane pictures but nothing that stood out for me. I remember some of Connor's shots from Oshkosh 2016 that were great, but I can't say the same for mine.

    Neal would you still say that Reno is better for photos without having media credentials? I feel like Oshkosh is much better for airshow photos for spectators, you can get a lot closer to the action. Plus you have the sun at your back for the entire show. The backdrop at Reno is much better though.

    Oshkosh can certainly be overwhelming, I had the advantage of learning the grounds purely as a spectator before I started getting serious with a camera.

    This was originally about the number and variety of Warbirds that you get to see. The only two shows that I can think of that top Oshkosh in those terms would be Planes of Fame and Duxford.

    I am very biased though.

    The other thing Oshkosh is great for, is lining up wide photos, which I did a lot of this year.
