Chris Henry

Chris Henry is a staff member at the Experimental Aircraft Association in Oshkosh, WI. He was interested in aviation as a young boy and at the age of twelve began volunteering at the local air museum in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. There he worked on several World War Two air crafts such as the B-17 Flying Fortress, B-25 Mitchell, and P-47 Thunderbolt. He worked through college fueling airplanes at the local airport and graduated as an Air Traffic Controller. He worked ramp control for the airlines and then went on to become a manager of flight operations for a medical helicopter company. After serving as an air traffic controller for several years, Chris came to the EAA. In this role he works to create special moments for people from all walks of life. He has worked very closely with the B-17 Aluminum Overcast Program and has helped give many veterans the chance to become reunited with their airplane once again. Also in this role, he is able to show younger generations what those before them experienced. He has played a part in many special events at the EAA Museum in Oshkosh such as the Apollo 13 reunion, Freedom Flight and the Apollo Astronaut Reunion, allowing him the unique opportunity to interview 12 of the Apollo astronauts and tell the story of the Space Program in their words.
