The Brown Arch is a historical area, almost a "rite of passage" for new attendees and return visitors as well, creating an emotional passage through the arch. The tribute area will be located between Wittman Road and the flightline, and the bricks that will be offered will be on the west side of the arch. EAA will use the bricks by the throat of the design to share a message – a welcome to the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration. The plaque inscription will be "The Gateway to Aviation." Learn more
