On Saturday 24 February I will be speaking at the Hill Aerospace Museum in their Plane Talk series at 1:00 pm. The subject will be my experiences on 9/11, going from fast asleep to full up war in 30 minutes. This event will be recorded by C-SPAN Book TV for a broadcast at a later date on their cable channel. The cost of attending Plane Talk and the museum is free. The museum opens at 10:00 am and closes at 4:30 pm. The Plane Talk event will be held in the back annex of the museum.
Hill’s Museum is one of the only places you can go to see all the 1960 Cold War century series fighters in one building. Their McDonnell Douglas F-101 Voodoo is in the paint scheme of the Oregon air national guard, the last place this airplane flew. My Uncle Robert flew the Convair F-102 Delta Dagger right out of pilot training. Robert was in the 509 Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Clark Air Base The Philippines in the early 1960s. The F-102 on display has its weapons bay doors open so you can see the falcon muscles. The Lockheed F-104 looks so fast with it needlelike nose and short stubby wings, nicknamed “the missile with a man in it.”
Come join us for Plane Talk on 24 February at the Hill Aerospace Museum. The Gift Shop will also be selling copies of Tanker Pilot for me to sign.
