Ride along with the world’s best aerobatic pilots.

AirVenture Oshkosh is the largest air show on the planet, with more than 10,000 aircraft and more than half a million people. Viewers get an insider’s perspective when INSIDE flies along with the world’s best aerobatic pilots as they twist and tumble through the sky, and follow a father and son crew as they fly their restored P-51 Mustang on its maiden voyage to Oshkosh after a 14-year restoration — and compete for best in show. But even with unparalleled preparation and precaution, two things could destroy this event — bad weather and bad luck.

Inside "Oshkosh Air Show" encores Monday, May 24 at 7 p.m. on PBS World (cable 524/DT21.2).

Following on the heels of an action-packed first season, the second season of INSIDE offers a collection of dynamic new stories. Go behind the scenes of some of the world’s greatest events, unraveling the science, high-tech tools and non-stop drama as a compelling cast of characters races to pull off the impossible. Experience the world’s most awe-inspiring moments … from the inside.
