Saturday, July 16, 2011 | 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM   
Western Museum of Flight, 3315 Airport Dr., Torrance
What was Hughes Aircraft like without the “Hughes”? Find out from the man, Ken Richardson, who bridged the gap between Hughes Aircraft founder eccentric Howard Hughes and General Motors’ purchase in 1987. Richardson started at Hughes out of Tufts as an engineer and 37 years later became president guiding 80,000 employees in a $7 Billion (1990’s) economy. The author of “Hughes After Howard - The Story of Hughes Aircraft Company” will share his wealth of experiences and that of 90 former Hughes employees. This is a remarkable piece of American aviation history as well as insight into Southern California’s love affair with aerospace. Learn about many complex products in all fields of electronics crafted by this highly motivated, inventive team. Prior to his current book, Richardson also co-authored “Testing Death: Hughes Aircraft Test Pilots and Cold War Weaponry.” WMoF members and non-members are welcome.
