Spartans at Oshkosh – Various Years Before 2016

Thirty four Spartans were built and twenty have survived.  Eighteen of the survivors are in the US and two are in the UK.  Of the eighteen US survivors, some do not fly, some fly infrequently and a few fly on a regular basis. The eighteen US survivors are spread across the country from Connecticut, to Florida, to Washington to New Mexico.

If you want to actually see a Spartan, where do you go?  Oshkosh, of course.  Although there have been a few Oshkosh shows in recent years when no Spartans were on display, it is normal to see one or two of these rare beauties.  If you really get lucky and attend in a good year, you may even see three or more.

The following pictures show some of the Spartans flown to Oshkosh in recent years
