OSHKOSH — The Experimental Aircraft Association says its annual fly-in convention this summer will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the beginning of World War II.

EAA AirVenture in July will feature both American and Japanese aircraft from the World War II-era, a special program with Pearl Harbor veterans and historians and a recreation of the days leading up to Dec. 7, 1941. Part of the commemoration will also include a restored Interstate Cadet aircraft that was in the air for flight training over Oahu, Hawaii when the Japanese attack began.

This year’s convention at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh will be held July 25-31.
