EAA AirVenture to Feature SpaceShipOne

spaceshipone.jpgEvery year the Expiremental Aircraft Association (EAA) host the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration, AirVenture, at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year the show will have a special exhibit SpacehipOne & its carrier White Knight. SpaceShipOne was the first succesfull civilian-built spaceship that won this summers $10 million Ansari X Prize.

According to AVWeb "EAA AirVenture 2005 will offer all attendees the opportunity to see the aircraft that accomplished that goal and hear from the main participants exactly how it occurred." In a release on the AirVenture site EAA President and AirVenture Chairman stated �SpaceShipOne and White Knight show where the dreams of flight can lead us, to a place where not even the sky is the limit. We are very proud that those who led this achievement received inspiration through EAA and want to share their accomplishment in Oshkosh, where the whole world gathers to celebrate flight.�

AirVenture is slated for July 25 - July 31. I plan to make my second visit to AirVenture sometime during that week.
