The Banquet is open to the public. A no-host dinner with live music at the Joseph airport is planned, commencing at 5:30-6 pm on July 13, 2018. $25 per person and $5 for a ticket for two beers. We hope to have online advance sales of Banquet tickets, so watch for a link in the near future. The Banquet will feature a live auction, and a silent auction will begin at the Banquet and end on Saturday around 11am. The proceeds from the Banquet, Fly-In and Auctions will be directed by NEOAF for the support of aviation and aeronautical sciences education at the high school level in Wallowa County.
On Saturday a six-plane formation flight of the West Coast Ravens will kick-off the 9th annual Wallowa County Fly-in and Pancake Breakfast (wallowacountyflyin.com) at Joseph, Oregon Airport slated for Saturday, July 14, 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Breakfast will be served until 10 a.m.) Warbirds such as an F4U Corsair, an AT-6 “Texan”and a P-51 Mustang will also rip the skies with the scenic Wallowa Mountains as a backdrop. On a first-come, first-serve basis a limited number of free rides for Vietnam, Korean and WWII veterans will be provided during the event. Paid rides will also be available.
A static display of numerous aircraft spanning decades of aviation and an interactive educational kiosk for students, including Air Force memorabilia and a simulator, will add to the excitement. Aviation merchandise will be available for purchase.
General Aviation enthusiasts, as well as the public, are invited to join in the fun day of aviation activities. Touted as “The Best Little Airshow in Oregon,”this fundraiser for the Northeast Oregon Aviation Foundation supports a county-wide high school aviation program coordinated with Treasure Valley Community College of Idaho.
