Speaker and Meeting Recap:
Our guest speaker for this meeting was Colonel Don Outler, Commemorative Air Force. He is the Development Officer for the Wing.
The Commemorative Air Force’s unit in Houston is called the Gulf Coast Wing. The unit consists of the “Tora-Tora-Tora” aviation air-show act and we operate one of just 12 flyable remaining B-17s called TEXAS RAIDERS. It will be a general 25-30 minute presentation (combination historical video as well as current aircraft video display) for groups involved with the HMAC. The mission is to maintain in flying condition the military aircraft of WWII and (most recently) Vietnam.
