March 26, 2015 - Bill Harrelson, EAA Lifetime 257277, who successfully circumnavigated the earth via the polar route earlier this year in his modified Lancair IV N6ZQ, will be the featured speaker at the LOBO (Lancair Owners and Builders Organization) annual EAA AirVenture Banquet in July on Thursday, July 23, at the Best Western Premiere Waterfront in Oshkosh.

“Bill Harrelson had a Walter Mitty dream, one of building an airplane in his hangar and flying it around the world in record time,” said LOBO President Jeff Edwards. “He fulfilled that dream earlier this year while the world watched his adventure unfold on the Internet.”

In February 2013 Harrelson concluded a record long-distance flight (7,051 nautical miles) flying N6ZQ nonstop from Guam to Jacksonville, Florida. “Bill’s inspirational efforts in designing, building, and flying the plane highlight the unique capabilities and efficiencies of modern homebuilt aircraft when flown by a true aviator,” Edwards added.

Seating for this AirVenture dinner is limited, and tickets will available to LOBO members only until June 23. On June 24, any remaining seats will be offered to the general public on a first-come, first-served basis. The banquet is sponsored by Lancair International Inc., and begins at 5:30 p.m. For more information visit:
