Torrance Airport (3315 Airport Drive, Red Baron #3)
Come celebrate Armed Forces Weekend with the Western Museum of Flight's (WMoF) Celebrity Speaker Series featuring Dan Delane often considered "the" Eagle Driver. The F-15 Eagle, a McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter, was considered among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 aerial combat victories with no losses in dogfights and Delane was right there in the mix. The Air Force was charged with the responsibility to guarantee that the United States and our allies, i. e., Israel, Japan, Saudi Arabia, etc., would absolutely rule the skies over any field of conflict. The Eagle was first flown in July 1972 as a fast, agile, and versatile fighter then activated into service in 1976. Its powerful engines enabled it to climb to altitude in a hurry, respond instantly to the pilots' throttle movements, and to fly and fight at supersonic speeds. Its radar could find and identify threat targets quickly and accurately, and provide that data to the aircraft's weapons computer, which could instantly command any of the wide variety of weapons the pilot chose to employ. The Eagle required the best of the best pilots and we are fortunate to have one of those best of the best - Dan Delane - who is willing to describe for us some of the skills needed to command the Eagle, and some of the thrills experienced by the privileged few who had the opportunity to do so. Also WMoF will have a Warbird display during the lecture. You'll be up close and personal with the Skytrooper, Valiant, Texan, Expeditor and Mustang. As always, WMoF Members are free; non-members are $5, which also includes access to WMoF museum exhibits. Free parking. Enjoy the Celebrity Series?
