Things are quieting down in Oshkosh, as EAA AirVenture 2017 officially came to an end Sunday.

Officials say it was a record setting year.

Spokesman Dick Knapinski says they had big crowds, and a lot of highlights this year.

He says they included the Blue Angels on Friday and Saturday, and the reunion of Apollo astronauts on Friday.

Knapinski says the weather was almost perfect, with great conditions on six of the seven days.

Officials say the  estimated more than 600,000 people who came out for AirVenture this year was the highest attendance in the event’s history.

More than 10,000 aircraft made their way to Wittman Field for the event.

AirVenture brings in $60 million dollars to the City of Oshkosh annually.

It also brings $110 million dollars to the entire area.
