    Google Maps

    If you look at the present satellite picture of Google maps, it's when Airventure is active. I went searching for our camper and it's not there. So we camped the last 3 years. Looking at the flight line, looks like it might be during the airshow. I notice in front of the Hondajet pavillion, there are lots of long EZs. Anyone know what year this was?

    I am reasonably certain that is from 2011. My airplane partner and I flew in with the Cessnas 2 Oshkosh group that year, and I can still find our plane in that satellite picture. Interesting to note, though, I only see that picture on the mobile version of Google Maps, when I look at it on the web, there is a newer photo.

    It was the year to celebrate Rutan designs. See them on Boeing Square.

    If you wish to search back a few years on the web version the air venture picture is still there.

    The newest I could find on Google Earth was Airventure for 2012. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

    They use different years depending on the zoom you use sometimes.
    Try this:

    Zoom close and airplanes are gone.

    Yes, guess I should say I am using the Android Maps app. Doesn't change no matter how I zoom it....

    So that was 2015. I also noticed there is a taxiway in front of the Hondajet pavillion. I know that's been gone for a while.
