Museum Events To Celebrate The Life Of Steve Wittman

January 23, 2004 - EAA AirVenture Museum will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of a true aviation legend, S.J. "Steve" Wittman on April 3-5. A champion air racer, noted airplane designer and builder, airport manager and flight instructor, Steve provided inspiration to thousands of people throughout the EAA family and the entire aviation world. The Wittman Hangar at Pioneer Airport was built and dedicated in his memory, and will be specially opened each day for guided tours on April 3-5. Also on Monday April 5 - the 100th anniversary of Steve's birth-a special evening program, "Memories of Steve," will be presented. A number of Wittman's closest friends will be on hand to share their memories, including his biographer Aaron King, and EAA Founder and Chairman Paul H. Poberezny.

In addition, we have been digging deep into our Steve Wittman movie and video archives, and the best selections will be shown during the evening. The event is free and open to the public, but a collection will be held that evening in support of projects that sustain Steve's memory. For reservations, please contact Kate Robinson 920/426-6869, or krobinson@eaa.org. This event will also be broadcast live over the Internet via the EAA website, www.eaa.org, beginning at 6.30 p.m. CT.

The broadcast is made possible thanks to generous assistance from the Wright Family Fund, a charitable foundation administered by the descendants of the Wright brothers that provided the installation of equipment for live video broadcast of EAA AirVenture Museum-based programs over the Internet.
