WRIGHT BROTHERS MEMORIAL BANQUET
Friday, December 13
Reception 6 p.m., Dinner 7 p.m.
The effort to recreate one of aviation history’s most beautiful but unproven designs will be the highlight presentation at EAA’s annual Wright Brothers Memorial Banquet. This year’s banquet will commemorate the 110th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ first powered flight at Kitty Hawk, N.C.
Join us as EAA member Scotty Wilson describes his quest to build a full-scale, flyable reproduction of the Bugatti 100P racer, “the most historically significant airplane that never flew.”
Tickets for the banquet are $50 for EAA members and guest, $60 for non-members/guest, and include the reception, full-service dinner, and evening program.
Reserve your tickets online or call 920-426-6823.
The Christen Eagle was more than a high-performance aerobatic airplane. It was a ground-breaking design that elevated aircraft homebuilding to an exceptional level of sophistication. The Christen Eagle was the first truly complete airplane kit ever offered, combining professional design and styling with factory quality parts and ease of construction. It included all parts, materials and information needed to build and fly the airplane – including tools, jigs, factory-welded assemblies, finished fiberglass moldings and a 30 volume set of illustrated construction and flight manuals.
