On With The Show!

EAA Announces Air Show Lineup for AirVenture 2004

The Experimental Aircraft Association will again welcome some of the world's finest air show performers for the 2004 EAA AirVenture fly-in, July 27-August 2, at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh (WI).

The daily air shows have played a major role in the world's largest aviation event, AirVenture Oshkosh, since the first EAA AirVenture fly-in began in 1953. Top aerobatic competitors and teams, precise formations of Warbirds, plus the Marine Corps Harrier and many other EAA favorites, never cease to awe visitors with their aerobatic routines.

"If you look at the lineup of air show performers who have flown at AirVenture through the years, it is a list of the very best aerobatic pilots in the world over the past three decades," said Tom Poberezny, EAA President and AirVenture Chairman. "The mixed audience of aviation enthusiasts who understand the skill and dedication required by performers, as well as the general public entertained by "breathtaking" acts in the sky, make AirVenture Oshkosh a highly anticipated venue for these world-class air show performers."

Featured aircraft and aviation representatives will kick off the daily afternoon performances with their "Showcase Flights" before popular returning pilots, long time favorites and exciting new arrivals take to the skies at 3:30 p.m. (2:00 p.m. on Monday, August 2).

Among the top performers at EAA AirVenture 2004 will be Patty Wagstaff, Sean Tucker, Soucy/Stokes Wing Act, Liberty Parachute Team, and the AeroShell Aerobatic Team. Warbird performances will be featured on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, with pyro added to the Saturday and Sunday performances.
