The E-1 is supposed to be on display during AirVenture this coming week! I’m not exactly sure where, but usually some of the aircraft not yet on display in the museum are towed to a grassy area behind the museum so people can see them during AirVenture. Arnold is planning to be there on Wednesday, along with my older sister, Maureen. I don’t arrive until Thursday, but once I find the E-1, I’ll be sure to post a picture! I’m hoping it will be on display with Ed Lesher’s Teal, which held the C-1a distance record from 1975 until 1984, when Gary Hertzler set the record that Arnold then broke in 2010.
Also, I’m going to give two presentations and will be signing books during AirVenture. The first presentation is on The Propeller under the Bed and will be at the museum on Thursday, July 26, 1:00 pm to 2:15 pm. It’s titled Homebuilts: Not the Usual Suspects and I’ll be signing books afterwards.
The second presentation will be 10:00 am to 11:15 am on Friday, July 27, at Forum Stage 3. It’s titled F-100 & F-8: The Forgotten Fighters. The material in this presentation is based on some research that Maureen has done on the F-100, along with some of my F-100 articles and an article I wrote on the F-8 a couple of years ago.
I’ll also be signing books 3:45 pm to 4:45 pm on Friday at the Sky Shoppe Authors Corner and again at 2:45 pm to 3:45 pm on Saturday, July 28, at the Wearhouse Authors Corner.
I hope to see some of you there!
