Lucas & Ford Heading To AirVenture In WI

Posted By Mike on July 13, 2011

A convention celebrating aviation seems like the perfect place to screen a film about the Tuskagee Airmen of World War II. George Lucas agrees as on Friday, July 29th, he will be presenting his first screening of Red Tails at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in Wisconsin.

Lucas will not be the only Star Wars celebrity on hand. Noted aviation enthusiast Harrison Ford will be there as well for a screening of Clear and Present Danger on July 27th.

For a little more clarification on the event as a whole, here is what AirVenture.org has to say on their "About" page...


"For 51 weeks a year, EAA is an international community of more than 160,000 members that nurtures the spirit of flight through a worldwide network of chapters, outreach programs, and other events.

But for one week each summer, EAA members and aviation enthusiasts totaling more than 500,000 from more than 60 countries attend EAA AirVenture at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where they rekindle friendships and celebrate the past, present and future in the world of flight.

"The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration" has it all when it comes to aircraft. Warbirds. Vintage. Homebuilts. Ultralights. Some you would normally find in a hangar at your local airport, others so unique they are the only one of its kind.

You name it, there's likely an example of it at Oshkosh.

For many, arriving at Oshkosh is a rite of passage that can only be satisfied by being one of the more than 10,000 aircraft flying in, landing at what becomes the busiest airport in the world.

Whether you're an aviation enthusiast or an aviation novice, AirVenture has something for you. No matter what your age, you'll be entertained, informed, and thrilled by the countless activities available that reflect the spirit of aviation all around.

Daily air shows. Aerobatics and pyrotechnics. Opening Day concert. Fly-In Theater. Forums, workshops, and demonstrations. KidVenture. Theater in the Woods. All of this, plus much, much more is included with your daily admission."



Visit AirVenture.org for more info on the aviation celebration that runs from July 25 - 31, 2011.

Thanks to Brian S. for the heads up!
