EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: EAA Memorial Wall Receives 2016 Dedications

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo traditional EAA Memorial Wall Ceremony was held on Sunday morning, on the last day of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016.  During the ceremony, the names and biographies of those EAA members who have passed away in the last year were  presented to the audience of family and friends.  Their names are also dedicated on the EAA Memorial Wall that serves as the backdrop for the gathering.  A wreath was posted near the wall by EAA Chairman and CEO, Jack Pelton, and a "Missing Man Formation" was flown by several of the airshow performers.   

The Aero Experience was honored to attend and present this story in dedication to those remembered at the ceremony and into the future, including our friends Joe Dobronski and  Bob Kraemer, who both passed away recently.
