Memorial Wall Honors Fallen Aviators, Friends, and Family

July 29, 2018 - The EAA Memorial Wall is a special place on the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh grounds honoring fallen friends, family, and others who have inspired future generations of aviators.

The 2018 dedication ceremony and reading of the newly added names will take place at 10 a.m. today, July 29, 2018. The program also includes a missing-man formation flight and the playing of taps.

The Memorial Wall was built from stones brought to Oshkosh by EAA members from around the world. Bronze plaques are installed each year bearing the names of the new inductees and are formally installed on the last day of the convention.
