100 Years of Naval Aviation: You’re All Invited to the Party

This 100th year of Naval Aviation will be filled with celebration, not the least of which will be a special emphasis at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011. The U.S. Navy is kicking things off with its Centennial of Naval Aviation Aerial Review on February 12, 2011, in San Diego, California. If you’re a warbird owner with a Navy aircraft, Uncle Sam wants you. I think the rest of us would have a blast just being there.

From: Commander, Naval Air Forces
To: Distribution
Subject: Centennial of Naval Aviation Aerial Review

1. Per reference (a), Commander, Naval Air Forces (COMNAVAIRFOR) will host the Centennial of Naval Aviation Aerial Review on February 12, 2011. In coordination with United States Marine Corps, United States Coast Guard, Federal Aviation Administration, and several other agencies, the Centennial Task Force will showcase to the San Diego community and to our nation a multitude of aircraft – from a replica of the very first Navy seaplane to our most recent and technologically superior aircraft of tomorrow. In 1911, Navy’s first aircraft alighted from the waters of San Diego Bay. With the same airspace as our aviation pioneers, it is appropriate to recognize the 100 years of progress and achievement in a grand display of Naval Air Power.

2. COMNAVAIRFOR and the Centennial Task Force take pleasure in inviting all historic Naval Aviation and other vintage aircraft operators to join us in February 2011 when we commemorate and celebrate 100 years of Naval Aviation achievement and progress.
