How to Follow Us on Southwest's Special Flight into the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh Airshow

July 27, 2012 at 4:14 PM | by | ()

For one week every summer, the airport of a small city in Wisconsin operates the busiest air traffic control tower in the world. The reason: America's largest gathering of aviation enthusiasts and the planes they love. It's called EAA AirVenture Oshkosh and it sees 15,000 aircraft and up to a million attendees....plus us.

We'll be heading to "Super Saturday" at Oshkosh onboard one of Southwest Airlines' newest 737s, flying right into the show from Chicago-Midway. It's going to be craaaaayyyyzay awesome, and we want you along for the ride.

Although we'll be up early tomorrow and there for only one day, the fun will be constant. Here's how to follow along for all our hot and bothered OSH excitement tomorrow, Saturday:

· Follow us on Twitter:
@Jaunted is the name and tweeting breaking travel news and photos is our game. Where there's WiFi (or 3G), we'll be there. You can also follow the hashtag #OSH12 and the personal account of Jaunted's editor, @JetSetCD, for more.

· Listen in on Air Traffic Control:
Download the $2.99 LiveATC app or just visit LiveATC.net and tune into the tower for KOSH (Wittman Regional Airport). There's several options, but the Arrivals or Air Show radio should be best. Listen for Southwest 8725 arriving OSH around 7:45-8:10am CST, and Southwest 8726 leaving OSH to head back to MDW around 6-6:30pm CST.

· Follow us on Foursquare:
We're addicted to putting our stamp on the world, venue-by-venue, and that's where Foursquare comes in. Be our friend on Foursquare HERE, and you'll know exactly where we are by our check-ins.

· Catch our original outtakes on Instagram:
We can't put all our photos on the site, and Instagram makes them cuter anyway. We'll be doing iPhoneography like crazy, focusing on the details, and uploading whenever we can. (usernames: Jaunted, JetSetCD)

· Stay tuned to Jaunted.com:
Expect photo galleries and more original fun, starting Monday.

And though we'll be mostly on the ground, here's a little taste of what's been happening in the air:
