uilt between the dawn of powered flight and 1970 will take place July 22-26 adjacent to the Vintage Hangar. This year’s headline presentations will focus on antique and classic aircraft from the 1920s to the 1940s and is open to all attending AirVenture.

“Vintage in Review offers attendees an opportunity to see a rare selection of airplanes up close, and hear stories about them directly from the owners, pilots, and other aviation personalities,” said Ray Johnson, Vintage in Review Chairman. “Several of this year’s headline aircraft are more than 75 years old, making them quite rare to see airworthy today.”
