Aircraft Arrivals – EAA volunteers will start placing aircraft on Thursday, July 24, 2014. We ask that all aircraft arrive no later than Sunday, July 27, 2014 for placement in your site. We will place aircraft from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm Thursday, July 24- Sunday, July 27, 2014. Any aircraft arriving later than 5:00 pm, Thursday, July 24 – Sunday, July 27, will temporarily be placed over night and placed in your display the following morning. If your aircraft arrives after 5:00 pm on Sunday, July 27th, you run the risk of us not being able to accommodate your aircraft in your display space for the show. Please keep in mind that Sunday July 27th is one of our busiest days for Exhibitor Check-in and aircraft arrivals, so please feel free to arrive on or before Saturday July 26th to avoid all traffic.
