Ten-year-old Hakon Heggland gets a ride from Sean Tucker as the Blue Angels fly in formation over the Airventure show in Oshkosh, Wisc. on July 28, 2017. Sean Tucker is the Experimental Aircraft Associations' Young Eagles chairman and took Hakon for a ride during the show which runs through Sunday, July 30. The special flight is part the 25th Anniversary celebration of EAA Young Eagles' aviation's leading program to introduce kids to flight. Since 1992 more than two million kids have been inspired by the Young Eagles movement to become everything from aerospace engineers to professional pilots and so much more. Tucker is the international chairman of Young Eagles. When searching for a Young Eagle for a flight experience at AirVenture, Tucker couldn't think of a more worthy candidate.(Photo: Tim Loehrke, USA TODAY)
