National Park Service rangers from the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park and NAHA volunteers helped tell the story of the invention of the airplane to thousands of visitors last week at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual AirVenture convention in Oshkosh, Wis.
Throughout the week, rangers and volunteers answered questions and presented forums about aviation heritage at sites like Dayton’s national park and the Wright Brothers National Memorial at Kitty Hawk, N.C. They also addressed concerns about access to NPS locations by land or air.
The park service was one of several agencies with exhibits in AirVenture’s Federal Pavilion. Nearly 21,000 visitors passed through the pavilion every day, according to Ranger Nicholas Georgeff.
