It’s well established that AirVenture attracts aviation enthusiasts from all over the world and every year visitors from dozens of countries demonstrate their appreciation for the show and show off their national pride in a parade along the flightline. A little marching music courtesy of EAA adds a festive note to the cheerful event, which draws smiles and applause from other attendees along the parade route.
