On July 31st, hundreds of women gathered together at AeroShell
Square to celebrate women in aviation. This was the second
year that EAA AirVenture honored women with a dedicated day of
activities, guests, and celebrations.
The day is meant to encourage other women to pursue their
dreams, both in aviation and in life. Peggy Chabrian,
president of Women in Aviation International was on hand to speak
to attendees, as well as several honored guests including WASPs,
Julie Clark, and Jill Long.
An estimated 550 women participated in a group photo,
commemorating the day in special lavender shirts.
