Thrush 510G to Perform at Oshkosh
Thrush Aircraft announced a new Thrush 510G will be performing at EAA AirVenture at Wittnam Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wis., this year to showcase the unique abilities of the aircraft. The airplane will be flown by Thrush’s chief instructor pilot, Terry Humphrey, a highly experienced ag pilot. Humphrey’s demonstration will highlight ag aviation in front of more than 500,000 airshow attendees.

The Oshkosh aviation event runs from July 29 through Aug. 4.The Thrush flight performances are scheduled on July 30 and Aug. 1. To prepare for this performance, Thrush partnered with Ed Hamill, an airshow pilot and F-16 instructor at Luke Air Force Base, to develop a routine to properly demonstrate the capabilities of the current generation ag airplane. Hamill has performed at Oshkosh several times in the past. The routine, which must be approved by EAA and the FAA, should be entertaining but above all must be safe.

EAA has dubbed AirVenture as “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration,” and this year’s event promises not to disappoint. The show will feature flying by some of the best aerobatic pilots, warbirds, homebuilts and military aircraft. Best of all, AirVenture should portray ag aviation and its vital role in an exciting, entertaining and informative light.
