Oshkosh 50th Anniversary to be Celebrated at Theater in the Woods

June 6, 2019 - A special presentation celebrating 50 consecutive EAA fly-in conventions in Oshkosh will take place on Monday, July 22, beginning at 8:30 p.m. at Theater in the Woods during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019.

Titled "Oshkosh 50th Anniversary Celebration," the presentation will feature more than 30 big names from past conventions and will be emceed by longtime EAA member Steve Buss. Broken down by decade, beginning with the move to Oshkosh in 1970, the program will feature videos and photos from the early days, including footage of EAA founder Paul Poberezny, a new interview with Audrey Poberezny, and more.

Past jet team performers as well as homebuilt, vintage, warbirds, and aerobatic and air show legends will also be on hand to speak about their experiences at Oshkosh. Listen to stories about how the event has transformed from a small fly-in to the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration!
