OSHKOSH (WXOW) -- The EAA AirVenture is underway, but some planes are noticeably missing from the sky this year.
Because of the sequester, all military plane appearances have been canceled across the country.
One pilot from the Air Force Thunderbirds made the trip.
Major Caroline Jensen, a Wisconsin native, was on hand to talk about flying and what she's doing since her fleet has been grounded.
"A lot of us are working on our education, professional development, so there's been good things that came out of it. But I'm hoping next year we get to fly and we get to come back and grace the skies of Wisconsin."
Despite the missing planes, EAA organizers say they've got enough innovations of their own to fill the skies.
