Where can you see not only the two pilots of SpaceShipOne give their own personal observations of flying into suborbital space, but also the man who designed the spacecraft that got them there? Or see and hear from World War II heroes, modern day innovators, and esteemed aviation personalities on a daily basis? EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2006, of course, and the venue is the EAA AirVenture Museum Speaker Showcase.

An outstanding roster of aviation personalities is slated to appear every day, telling their personal stories throughout several locations at the world-class EAA AirVenture Museum.

Burt Rutan will appear at the
AirVenture Museum Speakers Showcase.

"The Museum Speaker Showcase makes the museum an exciting place to be," said Adam Smith, EAA AirVenture Museum director. "It provides the museum visitors with the opportunity to hear personal accounts and other information from some of aviation's most well-known people."

On opening day, July 24, SpaceShipOne pilots Brian Binnie and Mike Melvill appear back-to-back to give their accounts of being the first civilian astronauts in the 2005 X-Prize flights. Historian Darrell Collins' gives his riveting account of the Wright brothers and events leading up to the first-ever powered flight.

Also included on the schedule of more than 70 presentations throughout the week are Academy Award-winning actor Cliff Robertson, who will share his personal aviation and movie experiences (Thursday, 1 p.m.); Joe English, Lancaster bomber pilot from World War II who participated in "Operation Manna" (Monday at Noon); and ultralight pilot Joe Duff, who will talk about Operation Migration, an intriguing effort to teach endangered Whooping Cranes how to migrate (Wednesday at 2 p.m.).
