EAA CONVENTION WINGS PARK 2014
By Willie Bodenstein
Stepping into the breach at short notice after the cancellation of the Aero Club event at Bethlehem Chapter 1262 hosted the EAA of SA's convention at Wings Park, East London.
The field on Saturday morning.
Almost 100 aircraft from all over the country attended the two day event.
The EAA is all about experimental aircraft and that includes amongst others Home Built, Vintage and Warbirds categories and at Wings Parks these types dominated.
Judging the aircraft is a serious business.

Russel Phillips Best Composite Aircraft and Best Design…….Ockert Henning EAA Concourse d'Elegance
Mike Wright and the members of Chapter 1262 really pulled out all the stops and organised a convention that will be remembered for years to come.
