A Ryan SCW offers plenty of reflection in the vintage area at AirVenture, my favorite place to hang out. Since the Vintage Aircraft Association was founded in 1971 as the Antique/Classic Division, its members have demonstrated their love and respect for aviation’s proud and colorful heritage. An antique aircraft is defined as constructed by the original manufacturer on or prior to August 31, 1945; a classic aircraft between September 1, 1945 and 1955; and contemporary between 1956 and 1970. Awards are presented in all three categories at AirVenture.
