EAA convention draws visitors from around the world

Posted:

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Hundreds of aircraft from around the world have landed in Oshkosh for the annual gathering of aviation enthusiasts.


   The Experimental Aircraft Association's AirVenture draws hundreds of thousands of people to Oshkosh for the 7-day convention. Daily airshows, military aircraft, the historic warbirds and the latest in aviation technology are all part of the air convention.


   One of the most memorable adventures in space exploration will be highlighted at this week's event. Members of the Apollo 13 crew and team will take part in activities marking the 45th anniversary of the aborted moon mission. Commander Jim Lovell and flight director Gene Kranz will lead the team members in discussions about the preparation, circumstances and determination that brought the astronauts back to earth.


   The EAA fly-in and convention began more than 60 years ago.
