Throwback Thursday: When the EAA Fly-In Called Rockford Home
For those who didn't know, the annual Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Convention (or Fly-In) is billed as the "World's Greatest Aviation Celebration," and it draws over 500,000 people each year to Oshkosh, Wisconsin. It's been in Oshkosh since 1970, but before that, between 1959 and 1969, it was held right here in Rockford.
