Help Honor the Breezy's 50th Anniversary
One of the most universally recognized aircraft to emerge from the EAA homebuilt movement marks its 50th anniversary this year - the RLU-1 Breezy - and EAA is inviting Breezy owners and operators to bring their aircraft to AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 where a number of special activities are being planned.
The Breezy was designed and constructed in 1964 by EAA members Charley Roloff, Bob Liposky, and Carl Unger. It featured a pair of Piper PA-12 wings and a factory-new Continental C-90-8 engine in pusher configuration and seating for two side-by-side passengers aboard the welded 4130 tubing structure. Registered as N59Y, the first Breezy made its initial EAA fly-in appearance the following year at the annual convention in at Rockford, Illinois, and a tradition was born.
