OSHKOSH - People are gearing up for AirVenture at the EAA grounds in Oshkosh.
The "World's Largest Aviation Celebration" kicks off Monday.
There's a flurry of activity at the EAA campgrounds ahead of the start of the annual event.
"Just setting up getting ready," said Robert Gehring of Rubicon.
Gehring was hard at work setting up a shelter with a group of family and friends.
He says he's looking forward to all that AirVenture has to offer.
"I like to look at the new stuff that's built and the antiques that are new and just fresh up here," said Gerhing.
Aviation enthusiasts come from near and far, some on the road, others by plane.
In anticipation of AirVenture, Jack Mason flew his Cessna into Oshkosh five days ago from Maynard, Massachusetts.
"It's basically just the camaraderie of flying in, getting to see everybody, come a little early before all the traffic comes in and everything and just watching everything get set up," said Mason.
Camilla Roberts of Peoria, Illinois arrived in her Cessna Wednesday, and says she's excited to be at this year's fly-in.
"It's great to be here at Oshkosh, and it's great to have the facility here, and the freedom to fly up here and enjoy the event," said Roberts.
AirVenture runs through August 4th.
