39th Airlift Squadron Panel
Time: Saturday, September 12, 2009 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Event Type: Public Program
Location: William M. Allen Theater
The 39th Troop Carrier Squadron has been moving everything from soldiers and celebrities to bodies and ammunition in and out of all sorts of places in every American conflict since World War II. Now renamed the 39th Airlift Squadron, it is one of the few World War II squadrons of any kind that is still active today. In a program at the Museum of Flight on September 12, veteran airlift pilots and crew members will share exciting stories and photos from the Vietnam era to the present. Mission permitting, a 39th Airlift Squadron Lockheed C-130 will be open to the public for tours during Museum hours on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 12 - 13 in the Museum parking lot.
