By  | 

OSHKOSH, Wis. (WBAY) - EAA Airventure kicked off Monday in Oshkosh.

550,00 people and 10,000 planes from 80 countries are coming to Wittman Regional Airport.

Thousands of planes are already on display with more arriving everyday.

Many said they come to Oshkosh to hear the stories of the planes.

One special moment will happened Tuesday when two Boeing B-29's, The Doc and Fifi will reunite in the air for the first time in more than 50 years.

The senior communications adviser said the stories of these planes are ones you will want to hear.

"A lot of stories reguardless of the airplane. You have military history, you've got commercial aviation history and people who have their own passion. People who just build and restore an airplane to make it their own. Those stories are just valuable and all great to hear here at Oshkosh," said Dick Knapinski, EAA Senior Communications Director.

The Doc took more than 15 years to be restored. To learn more about the historic plane: http://www.b-29doc.com/
