For the eighth straight year, Ford Motor Company has created a unique, aviation-inspired Ford Mustang to benefit Experimental Aircraft Association youth education programs, including the Young Eagles. The Mustang Apollo Edition will be donated and sold via auction at the Gathering of Eagles charity event at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015 - the World's Greatest Aviation Celebration.
All proceeds from the sale of the car will benefit EAA youth education programs, including the Young Eagles, which has provided free introductory flights to more than 1.9 million young people since 1992, helping grow the next generation of aviators.
"The Apollo program delivered astonishing innovations in technology and achieved a national goal of landing the first human on the moon," said Edsel B. Ford II, a member of the Ford board of directors. "The entire program was extraordinary - one of our nation's greatest technological achievements. With this year's stunning Mustang Apollo Edition, we salute that spirit of American ingenuity with the quintessential American automobile - Ford Mustang."
