Well, in case you didn’t notice—and how could you not?—the rains blew away, sunshine prevailed Sunday, and some soft ground, spots of standing water, and scattered puffy white clouds provided the only lingering remnants of the torrential conditions that dominated the prior few days.

The results: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2010 at the end of the day on Sunday looked much more like a normal pre-opening day than the day before.

According to the EAA AirVenture update blog, more than 350 homebuilt, vintage, and warbird aircraft found a place to park in the showplane areas before the airport closed to further arrivals at 2 p.m. Sunday.

The North 40, Vintage, and Homebuilt camping areas remained closed to aircraft campers.

But the good news of the day came in the form of reports that the ground in many areas is drying well—thanks to the wind, low humidity, and copious sunlight—and that Monday holds promise for letting EAA AirVenture look, feel, and sound much closer to normal.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
