The Christen Eagle II was introduced to the aviation world at EAA Oshkosh 1977. At AirVenture 2017, we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of this stellar, award-winning aerobatic biplane. Frank Christensen, president of Christen Industries, set the gold standard for kit-built aircraft with his series of kits and builder manuals. A single-seat version was also built by Christen for the famous Eagles Aerobatic Team which flew at Oshkosh for 25 years.
