From the time that the ancient Chinese began flying kites to the Wright Brothers’ Kitty Hawk to the first landing on the moon, people have had a fascination with taking flight. First stop in Oshkosh - EAA Museum!
The EAA Aviation Museum is one of the world’s finest aviation attractions with world-class displays and galleries including a collection of over 200 historic aircraft that chronicle the innovations in aviation that have occurred over the years since that first kite took flight in China. After viewing an introduction video, a guided walking tour of the museum will bring the history of manned flight alive. At time of publication, masks are still required, and temperatures will be checked prior to entering.
Lunch will be served at LaSure’s Banquet Hall with choices of Chicken Saltimbocca - Italian seasoned chicken breast wrapped in ham, smothered in mozzarella cheese, topped with sage cream sauce served with rice pilaf and warm breadsticks; or Whiskey Chuck Tender Steak - a gluten-free option of 6-oz marinated tender steak served with garlic-mashed potatoes. All meals include vegetable, desert, and coffee, hot tea, or milk as beverage choices. Cash bar will be available.
After lunch, we’ll explore a bit more of Oshkosh with a short hop in the bus along Lake Butte des Morts to M. Schettl Sales for a unique shopping experience. M. Schettl’s is a home improvement store with a fun twist! On the way back to Big Bend, the final stop will be to Oaks Candy Corner in Oshkosh to pick up some sweet treats for snacks on the way home or to enjoy later.
