Tickets Available For Eagles Bash


Want to rub shoulders with the likes of Chuck Yeager and Sean D. Tucker or take home Patti Wagstaff’s flight suit? There are still a few tickets available for the Gathering of Eagles, the gala benefit that kicks off EAA AirVenture a week from tomorrow. Dozens of the most famous and influential people in the aviation world will attend the event at the AirVenture Museum. It’s a fundraiser for Young Eagles and other educational programs aimed at inspiring young people to pursue aviation as a hobby or career. A live auction features items like a Segway human transporter, works by aviation artist James Dietz and even a weekend spent with racing-car drivers courtesy of Roush Racing. Raffle prizes include a ride in EAA’s Spirit of St. Louis replica, a Bose Wave radio, flight jackets, vacations and Wagstaff’s flight suit.
