Also you will want to bring a portable chair and some walking shoes along with other items you need for being outside for extended periods.
And, a hat for the sun and a lot of water for the heat. Also, keep an eye on the sky, particularly to the west, as thunderstorms can hit the field without a lot of warning.
One trick I use is to shoot the static aircraft during the daily airshow, as you will have a lot fewer people milling about the aircraft.
Also, be aware that there are really three airports that are part of the overall AirVenture. There is Wittman Field, the center of action, but there is also the Pioneer Airport just to the west of the main area and the Vette/Blust Seaplane Base, which is a short drive to the east on Lake Winnebago.
