Three Weeks And Counting

Armstrong, Yeager, Wright Family Lead Evening Schedule at Oshkosh

It's a chance to cover the gamut of aviation history and Aero News Network will be there with a bigger team of journalists, wider and more in-depth coverage than ever before -- along with the full range of insider news you've come to expect from us. It's EAA's Airventure 2003 and some of the biggest names in aviation history are among the special guests this year. ANN will be there a full week early, delivering to you information you'll need and features you won't want to miss as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Centennial of Flight.

Among the guests participating in the evening programs at EAA AirVenture’s Theater in the Woods are:

  • Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon
  • Chuck Yeager, the first person to fly faster than the speed of sound
  • Members of the Wright family, who will talk about the achievement of their ancestors Orville and Wilbur.

Evening programs at EAA’s annual fly-in have been part of the event almost as long as the gathering has existed. The first programs were created as educational seminars or entertainment for the aviation enthusiasts who were camping on the grounds. Since then, the programs have evolved into a sparkling showcase of aviation personalities, musical entertainment and recognition for EAA members and others. Among some of the highlights of the 2003 schedule of evening programs include:

  • “A Night with Chuck Yeager and Friends” (Wednesday, July 30) - A unique and personal discussion with Gen. Yeager, encompassing aviation and personal achievements, hosted by noted personality David Hartman
  • “The Wright Brothers and First Flight” (Thursday, July 31) - A one-of-a-kind overview hosted by David Hartman with Stephen Wright (great-grandnephew of the Wright brothers), Amanda Wright Lane (great-grandniece), Tom Crouch of the National Air and Space Museum and Darrell Collins from the Wright Brothers National Memorial
  • “An Evening with Neil Armstrong” (Friday, August 1) - The first man to step on the moon discusses his personal insights on 100 years of flight.
