AirVenture 2022 Warbirds in Review Schedule Announced

EAA AirVenture is fast approaching (July 25 – July 31, 2022), and the Experimental Aircraft Association has made some announcements concerning their Warbirds In Review program. Each day of the show, from Monday through Saturday between 10 am and 1 pm, will feature a new lecture in Warbird Alley. EAA Warbirds of America sponsors the events. These informal sessions not only delve into an aircraft’s restoration, operation, and other aspects of owning a valued piece of history, but also spotlight veterans sharing stories about what it was like to fly the aircraft in combat or support the operation as a ground crew member.

Preceding the daily presentations at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., the Warbirds Living History Group re-enactors will do an educational talk/demonstration regarding the flight gear associated with the upcoming aircraft. Singers will also provide entertainment from the 1940s-1960s just prior to actual Warbirds in Review sessions. All Vietnam veterans in attendance will be recognized before each session, and book signing opportunities will follow in the Warbirds Merchandise Building.
