EAA Memorial Wall
Dedicated to Those Who Have Loved and Supported Aviation
A Monument to Aviation Enthusiasts
Honor the memory of that special someone whose support and passion for aviation positively impacted your life by dedicating a plaque on EAA’s Memorial Wall.
Located on the edge of Pioneer Airport near the Fergus Chapel, the Memorial Wall provides a dignified place for families and friends to remember and honor these loved ones. Its centerpiece is a monument formed of thousands of stones brought to Oshkosh from EAA members' home states and countries. On both sides of the centerpiece, bronze plaques are installed annually to honor individuals whose names were submitted for permanent recognition.
The Memorial Wall is our way of saying, “thank you,” to them for sharing their talents and enthusiasm and for inspiring a new generation of passionate aviation enthusiasts.
Join Our 2014 Dedication Ceremony
EAA’s annual dedication service at AirVenture honors the legacy of the Memorial Wall's inductees from the previous year. This year’s ceremony will be held on the last Sunday of AirVenture, Sunday, August 3, at 11 a.m. Guests should arrive no later than 10:30 a.m. This heartwarming service includes a poignant reading of the names in honor of the new inductees. It concludes with a breathtaking “missing man” formation flight overhead along with the playing of “Taps.”
To have your special tribute recognized for the dedication ceremony at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, your order must be in by Monday, April 21, 2014.
Honoring Each Legacy
With a donation of $350 or more, you can personalize the plaque with the person’s name and outstanding details of their life.
Each Memorial Wall plaque inscription allows for two text lines consisting of 28 characters each (includes spaces, punctuation, etc.). Special commemorative rubbing paper will be available before and after the service for guests to make individual rubbings of the plaque.
Each Memorial wall inductee also receives a one-page biography (500 words max. plus photo) in the 2014 Memorial Wall Registry Album. (See an example.) The album will be added to the collection from past years including the biographies and photos of all previous inductees. Albums are available for viewing at the Chapel during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh and are also accessible throughout the year upon request at the EAA AirVenture Museum.
