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 RV-3 homebuilt was designed by Dick VanGrunsven as a “total performance airplane” – to do as many things as possible as well as possible. Its simple construction and the attention to aerodynamic detail produced an aircraft capable of high cruise speeds, low landing speeds, short field capability and aerobatic performance. A large cockpit with good visibility and stable handling characteristics make it a favorite among pilots. The Museum’s prototype RV-3, has been followed by the RV-4, RV-6, RV-7, RV-8, and RV-9 with several thousands of all models built. Learn more in the Van’s RV-3 prototype virtual exhibit.
