Torrance Historical Society - 1345 Post Ave., Old Torrance 90501
The Torrance Historical Society is getting the New Year moo-ving with farm-friendly authors Rachel Surls and Judith Gerber who will dish the dirt on their new book, "From Cows to Concrete: The Rise and Fall of Farming in Los Angeles." Find out what happened, and where all the green has gone. They will share the epic tale of how agriculture forged Los Angeles into an urban metropolis and how, ultimately, the Los Angeles farm empire spurred the very growth that paved it over, as sprawling suburbs swallowed up thousands of acres of prime farmland. And learn how, on the same land once squandered by corporate greed and “progress,” urban farmers are making inroads to a greener future. "From Cows to Concrete" (9″x9″ hardcover) will be available for purchase ($40; credit cards, cash and checks accepted) and signing. "Farming in Torrance and the South Bay" by Judith Gerber also will be available for purchase ($20; cash or checks) and signing.

Torrance Airport 3315 Airport Drive, Red Baron #3 Torrance, CA 90505
Is a program a success when only two prototypes are made and everyone gives up the fight for production? It flies at three times the speed of sound and hovers at 70,000 feet. The answer is a resounding “yes.” This describes the B-70 Valkyrie. On Jan. 21 at 11 a.m., Air Force Test Center Historian Joe Orr will tell all about this jet and the fight for it. Conceived in the late 1950s, and built in the early 1960s, the B-70 was America's solution to the problem of strategic deterrence during one of the most fearsome eras of the Cold War. The B70 made Soviet leaders feel very uncertain about their ability to survive any nuclear conflict with the United States. This revolutionary aircraft utilized a combination of advanced materials and manufacturing processes to take full advantage of new developments in jet engine and avionics technologies. The result was a bomber that so thoroughly preoccupied Soviet planners that it caused them to develop a whole new specialized fighter program, the MiG 25 Foxbat, in an attempt to counter it. The Russians attempted to copy the American bomber was vaguely similar, but was, well, Soviet-looking. The B-70 program was never funded past the flight test phase; it certainly accomplished the mission of complicating our adversary's strategic defense problem. In the Cold War atmosphere it was considered a major triumph. Start your New Year with Joe Orr, and hear about this remarkable story. Speaking of the New Year, it is prime time to become a member of the WMoF. Western Museum of Flight is a Southern California Historical Aviation Foundation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization and relies on memberships.
