Expanded plaza creates center of activity for legendary aircraft

The Vintage Aircraft Association has commenced a major expansion of its Vintage Plaza and Red Barn headquarters complex for this year’s fly-in.


Our expansion has been made possible through a generous gift from longtime VAA member Myrt Strong Rose of South Barrington, Illinois, who committed support to create a new plaza in the Vintage area in honor of her late husband Bill.

EAA Chairman Jack Pelton joined Vintage President Geoff Robison and the Vintage Board of Directors last Thursday for the ceremonial ground breaking. Also in attendance were
EAA Vice President Rick Larsen and EAA Director of Facilities Steve Taylor.


This major highlight is the expansion of the Vintage Interview Circle. The project, developed by VAA in association with Steve Taylor, EAA’s director of facilities, includes a larger display area and new seating areas. Vintage showplane registration has already moved south to a more central location, and the restaurant formerly located in Vintage Plaza is moving to the former showplane registration area.


“The project will also reduce vehicle congestion in the Vintage Red Barn area, which will enhance pedestrian safety and convenience,” Geoff Robison said. “We’re looking forward to the formal dedication of the expanded area on July 20, AirVenture’s opening day.”
