EAA's Going On The Air!
Discovery Wings Channel premieres Oshkosh 2004: The Next 100
Years, its fifth EAA AirVenture special, on Thursday, 2000 Eastern.
Produced with EAA Television, the hour-long special features

Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Included are
features about Mike Melville, pilot of SpaceShipOne and the first
private astronaut; Bruce Bohannon's attempt to break the 1946
altitude record for a piston-driven airplane; the arrival of the
Very Light Jet pioneered by Eclipse Aviation; and stunning
performances by some of the world's top aerobatics teams, and more.
(The program repeats Thursday at 10 p.m. ET.)
"Discovery Wings Channel and EAA share common goals: to
celebrate the wonder of flight, to explore the amazing
technological advances in aviation and to provide information to
private pilots and anyone interested in aviation," said David Karp,
Discovery Wings senior vice president and general manager. "By
combining our joint expertise, Oshkosh 2004: The Next 100 Years
will bring television viewers the best of the air show in an
entertaining and informative way."
"We're very pleased to partner with
Discovery Wings Channel to bring aviation lovers this extraordinary
close-up view of AirVenture 2004," said EAA president Tom
Poberezny. "AirVenture is the perfect launching site from which to
explore the exciting future of aviation."
The 2004 AirVenture special will air again on Friday, September
