Sun 'n Fun EEA Fly-in

This international sport aviation convention was founded by the Lakeland, Florida chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, a national organization of individuals who build their own airplanes. The Silver Anniversary Fly-In was held April 11-17,1999, with 684,200 registered attendees from 50 states and 74 countries. The air shows are complemented by educational displays, forums, and workshops that interpret and preserve the heritage of flight. Sun 'n' Fun is documented in background text, promotional materials, and the videotape 1999: a Sterling Year.
