When Ed and Connie Bowlin invited me to help them catalogue over twenty years of aviation collectibles, I jumped at the chance.
What amazed me even more is that Ed and Connie are making every single piece in this collection available to aviation enthusiasts like you and me -- to add to our own personal collections! Connie has given up the left seat to let a very fortunate EAA Historical Society contributor get a few minutes at the controls of the mighty Flying Fortress! Which leads me to the introduction of the two aviation "superstars" who are responsible for creating Aviationautographs.com ... Ed and Connie Bowlin. Ed's sensational military, airline and civilian background has allowed him to fly hundreds of different performance aircraft and his experience and accomplishments in aviation are practically unrivaled... well, except by wife Connie! Connie has over 20,000 flight hours in over 100 types of aircraft. Currently the only woman flying the B-17, she holds various type ratings and is authorized to fly a wide range of high-performance single and multi-engine aircraft (including the P-51 Mustang , Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, North American T-28 Trojan , Lockheed T-33, and British Aerospace Jet Provost, just to name a few!) She recently retired from Delta Air Lines as a 757/767 Captain. Thankful for the opportunity to have a great career and take advantage of early retirement.... In her spare time she writes aviation articles and has been published in several well-known aviation magazines. It is always fun to see the faces of spectators when she climbs out of a P-51 at airshows! She was honored as an Eagle in 1998 at the "Gathering of Eagles" and is truly an inspiration to female aviators. Ed and Connie are not only two of the best pilots, but are two of the finest people I know.

EAA Warbirds of America - Hall of Fame
Established by EAA, the Sport Aviation Halls of Fame recognize the accomplishments and contributions of aviation's pioneers. Since 1953, EAA and its members have been leaders and innovators in all aspects of recreational aviation-from homebuilding to warbirds, vintage to ultralights, aerobatics to flight instruction. While their interests are diverse, EAA members share a singular passion for the freedom that flight offers, and through the contributions they've made, aviation as a whole has benefited. To recognize these contributions, each year EAA inducts a new class of members into its Halls of Fame, each of them nominated by their peers. On Friday, October 24, during a special ceremony in the EAA AirVenture Museum's Eagle Hangar, seven special aviators were inducted into the EAA Sport Aviation Halls of Fame, including EAA Warbirds of America inductee Connie Bowlin. Connie grew up on a tobacco farm in Kernersville, North Carolina. After graduating from Winston-Salem Business College in 1970, she began her flying career as a Delta Air Lines flight attendant. While working as a flight attendant, she obtained her private, commercial, and airline transport pilot certificates and her multiengine and instrument ratings. In March 1978 she became the fourth female pilot hired by Delta-one of the first 50 women pilots hired by a major carrier. Connie flew as a second officer on the Boeing 727, was a copilot on the DC-9 and the Boeing 767/757, and then moved up to captain on the DC-9 in 1990. She retired from Delta Air Lines in 2003 as a Boeing 767/757 captain. Connie flew the EAA B-17 Aluminum Overcast for several years, starting when it first went on tour in 1994. She has more than 18,000 flight hours in more than 70 types of aircraft and is currently the only woman flying the B-17. She holds various type ratings and is authorized to fly a wide range of high-performance single- and multiengine aircraft, including the P-51 Mustang, Republic P-47 Thunderbolt, North American T-28 Trojan, Lockheed T-33, and British Aerospace Jet Provost. In her spare time she writes aviation articles and has been published in several well-known aviation magazines. Her involvement with warbird aircraft and aviation history and her friendships with many veterans led Connie to develop the website Aviation Autographs (www.AviationAutographs.com) to market autographed aviation books and prints. She also has been the driving force behind the popular program Warbirds in Review, which showcases significant warbird aircraft and pilots during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. Connie said her love for warbirds started with flying the planes. But as she's met the people behind the planes, she has become more and more enamored with the people. "These individuals have such a sense of duty. You get pulled into it by the history and their dedication...." Connie and her husband, Ed, reside in Griffin, Georgia. EAA Warbirds of America is proud to welcome Connie Bowlin to its Hall of Fame and thanks her for her many years of dedicated service. Hall of Fame Video 2008 Connie Bowlin
