YO-3A Dedication and Public Program

YO-3A Dedication and Public Program

Time: Saturday, September 7, 2013 - 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Event Type: Exhibit Public Program

Location: Great Gallery

Join us for a special afternoon as we dedicate and celebrate the Museum's acquisition and display of a YO-3A surveillance aircraft, one of only eleven that were ever made! Designed for the US Army by Lockheed, the YO-3A flew night surveillance missions over Vietnam in 1970-71; it's special design made it virtually silent and undetectable at night while flying above 1,200 feet. Though it arrived late in the Vietnam War and therefore only served a short time, the YO-3A proved to be groundbreaking in the eventual development of stealth technologies for subsequent generations of surveillance and combat aircraft. Come see and learn more about this rare, historic, and influential aircraft!

Join Museum staffers, including Senior Curator Dan Hagedorn, at 1pm in the Great Gallery for a formal dedication of the aircraft to the Museum collection, and at 2:30pm join us in the William M. Allen Theater for a public program (lecture and discussion) about the Y0-3A, featuring US Army Brigadier General George Walker (Ret).

These programs are free for Museum members and free with daily admission to the Museum of Flight
