For our Saturday, October 28, BBQ Lunch meeting, Scott Thompson will present on a widely-known but less-understood topic: Scrapping Our World War II Air Force.
(This program was originally scheduled for July 22 but that meeting was cancelled due to summer heat.)
Almost everyone has seen pictures of the endless rows of surplus warplanes gathered at remote desert fields after the end of World War II. Why were these bombers and fighters seemingly abandoned? What happened to them? Did we just scrap them and turn them into pots and pans? This presentation provides the details of what we did with a massive air force no longer needed.
The grill is hot from 11:00 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. when it shuts down, so come early. BBQ Lunch is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for kids 12 and under, and $25 for families.
And, for your convenience, we are now accepting credit and debit cards, plus other methods of electronic payment, for our meals, t-shirts, dues, and donations. Please join us on Saturday.
