Vintage Aircraft Invited To Round-Engine Rodeo At EAA AirVenture

Events To Be Held Daily During The Show

Vintage aircraft with radial engines will have a special focus as the Vintage Aircraft Association (VAA) is hosting the Round-Engine Rodeo on Monday, July 29 through Saturday, Aug. 2, during EAA AirVenture 2013. Vintage aircraft owners are invited to the gathering of radial-powered antique aircraft located in the Vintage area on the EAA AirVenture grounds.

Twice daily, vintage aircraft expert Ray Johnson will be interviewing hand-picked vintage aircraft owners and pilots in the VAA “Star Circle”. A select few antique airplanes and their pilots will be also be giving interviews at the air show center stage on Phillips 66 Plaza throughout the week. In addition, every evening vintage aviation enthusiasts can swap stories around a campfire in the vintage area.

“We are looking forward to a good turnout of beautiful aircraft powered by radial engines,” said Steve Krog, Vintage Director for VAA. “We’ll also recognize their significant role in aviation history.”

Krog describes last year’s turnout of vintage aircraft at AirVenture as having rows upon rows of Piper J3 Cub aircraft lined up so that they could be seen off the main flight line, which helped inspire this year’s Round-Engine Rodeo. Guided tours through this aircraft parking area will be given daily.

Vintage pilots on their way to Oshkosh are welcome to stop at Hartford Municipal Airport in Hartford, WI, Friday, July 26 through Sunday, July 28 for a grill out and refreshments with other vintage enthusiasts.
