There are thousands of stories at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh.

The 66th annual fly-in is underway for a week showcasing the history of aviation and the future of flying.

On Monday, Action 2 News This Morning caught up Mason Andrews. The 18-year-old aviation student is attempting to be the youngest pilot to complete a solo trip around the world.

He'll return to his journey from AirVenture on Tuesday.

We also met the team behind the Cri Cri. It's the smallest twin engine plane in the world.

The plane's French team will make

in the United States at AirVenture.

"We had to ferry the aircraft through a container ship across the Atlantic. We had to build a specific trailer for the aircraft and the rails and the gallery, but we did it and we're very happy to be here in Oshkosh this year," said team member Lucie Chapirot-Sarda.
