AirVenture Oshkosh is saying "thanks" to those who are serving and have
served our country in the military, as this year those people will
receive discounted admission pricing to the event. The 58th annual
edition of EAA AirVenture, "The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration,"
will again be held at Wittman Regional Airport on July 26-August 1.

Advance admission purchase is now available through the
comprehensive website. Active military members,
reservists and veterans will receive up to a 20 percent discount on
daily AirVenture admission. Daily admission purchased online through
June 15 is $28, while daily admission purchased after that date or at
the gate are just $30. Proof of military status or membership in a
recognized veterans organization is required when redeeming advance
purchase tickets at the AirVenture entrance gates.

"We're pleased to offer these admission discounts to those who
have served in the military," said Rick Larsen, EAA's vice president of
marketing and communications. "It is especially fitting since 2010 will
be the huge 'Salute to Veterans' program all week at Oshkosh.
AirVenture attendees understand and appreciate the sacrifices those in
the military undertake to protect our freedoms, and we are honoring that
this year."

led by EAA, the Warbirds of America, and the Disabled American Veterans
