Vintage in Review, an informal and interactive presentation series during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh that showcases unique airplanes built between the dawn of powered flight and 1970 will take place July 22-26 adjacent to the Vintage Hangar. This year’s headline presentations will focus on antique and classic aircraft from the 1920s to the 1940s and is open to all attending AirVenture.

“Vintage in Review offers attendees an opportunity to see a rare selection of airplanes up close, and hear stories about them directly from the owners, pilots, and other aviation personalities,” said Ray Johnson, Vintage in Review Chairman. “Several of this year’s headline aircraft are more than 75 years old, making them quite rare to see airworthy today.”

Three pilots will be interviewed each day with their unique aircraft. Each day will also see a performance by “Ladies For Liberty” at 10:45 a.m. followed by antique engine runs at 11 a.m. The current lineup of headliners includes:

Monday, July 22

  • Jim Hammond – 1931 Aeronca C-3

Tuesday, July 23

  • Kelly Mahon – 1929 Cabinaire Biplane
