AirVenture Show Pilots To Meet With Fans
EAA AirVenture will offer air show fans the chance to meet and greet their favorite pilots during the 2006 version of the big event. In a news release, EAA President Tom Poberezny said that at various times during the show, which runs July 24 to July 30 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, pilots will be set up in booths on AeroSell Square, in the heart of the exhibit area. "EAA AirVenture attendees have often asked us for ways to meet their favorite air show pilots in person," Poberezny said. "EAA will host these popular air show pilots and their airplanes, as well as other aviation personalities, at AeroShell Square, which is the true crossroads of the event." As always, the air show lineup is a virtual Who's Who of the show pilot world. Among those confirmed for the daily afternoon shows are Sean D. Tucker, Patty Wagstaff, Gene Soucy, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, the Red Baron Squadron, and many more. Exact daily performance schedules will be finalized in the weeks prior to EAA AirVenture and will be announced through the event's extensive Web site at www.airventure.org.
