Western Museum of Flight (3315 Airport Dr. Torrance)
Before the video game, before the Bruce Willis movie there was an Armageddon. Specifically, the fighters of Armageddon. An elite, specially trained force of fighter pilots capable and prepared to detonate tactical nuclear weapons deep inside Soviet-held territory. The pilots who could penetrate deep into enemy territory, evade air defenses and deliver weapons precisely on target. Pilots with the iron resolve should the chilling order come down from National Command Authority to quickly man his aircraft, fly to his target without hesitation. The adversary had to know, with absolute certainty, that if they took the fatal step of starting World War III, the retaliation wrought upon them would be swift, certain, and devastating. The Western Museum of Flight (WMoF) WMoF Celebrity Series presents one of these exceptional war fighters Lieutenant Colonel Don Oldis. He and fellow pilots knew every day they might be called upon to fly what amounted to a suicide mission yet he and his comrades stood ready, held that vital front line, and, in retrospect, provided the deterrence that finally proved to be both effective and victorious. So join us, while Lt. Col. Oldis shares some stories from that historic era, as well as his experiences as a combat pilot in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. As always, WMoF Members are free; non-members are $5, which also includes access to WMoF museum exhibits. Free parking. Enjoy the Celebrity Series? Why not support the WMoF with an annual membership (wmof.com/newmem.htm). The annual membership gives you one-year unlimited FREE admission to the WMoF museum, all the Celebrity Series Lectures, Quarterly Newsletters, access to the research library and access to Special Events.
