Gnoss Field – Tuskegee Airmen – Feb.11 9:00AM-12:00PM
Gnoss Field Community Association is hosting an exciting event honoring several of the Tuskegee Airmen (and some family members). This should be a great morning, and an opportunity to hear directly from them and participate in a QA about their experiences.
We’ll have several wonderful vintage aircraft on static display, weather permitting: P-51, Stearman, and T-6 trainers. We’ll also have the “Redstar Formation Team” of CJ6 aircraft conducting a multi-pass formation flying and actually taking some of the TA up for the fly-bys.

- Doors open at 9:00am (Continental breakfast served – coffee, juice, fruit, coffee cake, etc.)
- Start time for presentation is 10:00AM
WHERE: Gnoss Field, Scanlon Aviation Hangar
