Torrance Airport (3315 Airport Drive, Torrance, 90505)
Northrop Corporation built planes. You might recall the Flying Wings. Period. End of story. Not quite, but that is how many think of Northrop Aircraft. In 1939, Jack Northrop created and founded Northrop Corporation in the South Bay. Northrop's initial work gave birth to the Flying Wings in the 1940s. But his life didn’t start and end with the Flying Wings, and Tony Chong should know. Chong is the author of "Flying Wings & Radical Things: Northrop’s Secret Projects & Concepts 1939-1994." Chong will join us for the Western Museum of Flight’s Celebrity Series on Oct. 15 to share stories from his book, as well as stories that didn’t make the book. He will enlighten us on the many advanced concepts, both conventional and radical in shape and purpose, that were proposed and developed over the company’s proud 55-year history. Chong will review of several of the most important and intriguing of those advanced proposals by following their development and the evolving design philosophies behind them. This will be a fascinating talk for anyone interested in aviation technology and the Northrop in particular. Chong’s book will be available for sale at the museum, and he will be on hand to sign autographs. Parking is free. Be a part of the WMoF family. Think about individual, family or business membership. Membership gives you one-year unlimited free admission to celebrity lectures, plus the quarterly newsletter, access to the research library (includes membership card) and access to special events. Members also will be listed in annual publications. Support your community’s unique museum and place in history.
