Jim Lovell Attending EAA Air Venture

(Oshkosh) Jim Lovell the commander of the Apollo 13 mission is the special guest at the EAA’s annual Wright Brothers Memorial Banquet in Oshkosh on Friday, December 11th. It’s been 50 years since that nearly-tragic mission and Lovell will relate during the banquet how they survived the explosion of an oxygen tank early in the flight. Dick Knapinski of EAA AirVenture says Lovell didn’t have time to be afraid; they were too busy working on how to get home safely. Tickets for the banquet go on sale this fall and are $60 for EAA members and $80 for nonmembers.
