EAA set to begin Museum Webinar Series


The Experimental Aircraft Association on January 14 plans to start a monthly Webinar series focusing on highlights within the EAA Aviation Museum, which has now been in operation for four decades. The webinar series will be held on the second Tuesday of each month, beginning at 7 pm Central Time.

Each session will cover a different museum aircraft or artifact, and provide a history of the item, along with little-known stories about it. The sessions will be hosted by a member of the EAA museum staff, explains EAA, bringing in-depth information about the unique aircraft and artifacts.

The upcoming schedule of free museum webinars currently includes:

January 14 – Huey: Saving an Icon from the Vietnam War
A look at one of the museum’s newest exhibits, featuring a combat veteran Bell UH-1 Iroquois, better known as the “Huey.”

February 9 – Corsair: The Story of the EAA Museum’s F4U Corsair. This episode details the development of the F4U Corsair along with a rare view of the history of EAA’s example.

March 9 – Richard Bong: America’s Ace of Aces. Join the museum’s Chris Henry as he discusses the life of America’s highest-scoring WWII ace and Wisconsin native, Richard Bong.

Additional topics will be announced as they are finalized. With more than 100 aircraft on display in the museum and thousands of aviation artifacts in the EAA collection, the webinar series will bring original insight with every monthly episode.

Pre-registration for the webinar sessions is required via EAA.org/Webinars.
