INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S AIR & SPACE MUSEUM PRESENTS VETERANS DAY DINNER

Come support your local heroes

 

Cleveland, Ohio – On November 10, 2017, the International Women’s Air & Space Museum (IWASM) will host a Veterans Day pasta dinner to honor the local women and men who have served our country. Dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. The cost for this event is $15. The museum is located inside Burke Lakefront Airport, 1501 N. Marginal Rd., Cleveland, OH 44114.

Get a chance to hear some of their experiences and thank them for their service to our country. Dinner will be followed by a musical performance by vocalist Jill Bezak accompanied by Jeff Faubert.

We will also be collecting donations of warm clothing and small items to be used as Christmas gifts (phone cards, small alarm clocks, gift cards, etc.) to be distributed to veterans in need through the Louis Stokes VA Medical center and the Sandusky VA retirement community.

Those interested in attending can RSVP by calling 216.623.1111 or online at www.iwasm.org. Seating will be limited.

The International Women’s Air & Space Museum is located in the terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport, only seconds from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Great Lakes Science Center. The mission of IWASM is to preserve the history of women in aviation and space and to document their continuing contributions today and in the future. In 1986 the museum opened in Centerville, Ohio. IWASM was welcomed to the City of Cleveland, Ohio in 1998. Exhibits are in the lobby at Burke, as well as the west concourse, and are accessible seven days a week.

Alamogordo White Sands Regional Airport.

New Mexico Aviation Aerospace Association (NMAAA)

The Alamogordo White Sands Regional Airport in corporation with the New Mexico Aviation Aerospace Association (NMAAA) is extremely proud to announce the fifth annual New Mexico Aviation Aerospace STEM Expo.  The purpose of this event is to expose Middle and High school students to all aspects of aviation.  This spectacular event will be held at the Alamogordo airport on October 5th, 2017 from 0900 to 1500 (that is 9:00AM to 3:00 PM for those non-aviation 24 hour clock folks).  The past four years this expo has been held on Kirtland and Holloman Air Force Bases (AFB).  Due to security issues, these locations limited the number of students and civilian aircraft able to participate.  In 2017, it will be open to more aircraft and students because the location is at a public civilian airport!

This event drew over 2400 students in 2016 to Holloman AFB accompanied by 500+ adults.  They had the opportunity to view 82 exhibits and see over 28 different aircraft including sail planes.  Yes, Jane Lucero (New Mexico State Aviation Division) received a flight in a sail plane, kissing up always brings good will. The students were enthralled by Congressman Steve Pearce relaying his story about his flight around the world.  This Congressman is 100% involved and is always willing to help motivate the students towards a career in the aviation industry.

What to expect in the 2017 Expo?  There are over 144 Mid and High schools invited with an expected attendance of between 2,500 and 3,000 students. We know some of the adults, local service members and even aviators may find a new career path to pursue.  If you want to check out all the excitement come and attend!  Aircraft exhibitors can attend at no fee.  We do need support.  We operate on volunteers and donations.  This helps us pay for logistics and transportation expenses.  You can help us by sponsoring a single bus or covering a group of kids for lunch.   The NMAAA strives to pay for the fuel for the busses to bring the students to the event, and that alone runs into tens of thousands of dollars.  Any financial help is greatly appreciated.  As in past years, this has been by far the largest exposition of its kind in the country!

Exhibiters are adding up fast to exceed last year’s numbers and we anticipate to have over 40 aircraft.  A catered lunch will be provided at a nominal cost (remember the sponsorship?) and the Alamogordo squadron of the Civil Air Patrol Cadets will be providing lots of the service and labor.  One of the many stars of the show will be the Neptune Aviation P2V fire-fighting slurry bomber.  Weather and maintenance cooperating, the P2V will make a fly by including a water drop.  You will be thrilled by the sound of the twin 18 cylinder round engines as it roars by in a low level pass.  These are the only flying P2V’s left and this may be your only chance to see one of these magnificent planes in flight.

Anyone interested in being an exhibitor, sponsoring lunches, needing more information or anything else related to our expo or to receive a pilot’s sign up form, may contact Jim Talbert at the Alamogordo Airport, 575-551-6245, or Mr. Bill Shuert at NMAAA at 505-414-5548 .  For additional information and a history of our event can visit the NMAAA web site at www.NMAAA.net. 

Did I mention, that this is the largest Student orientated STEM Aviation Exposition in the country?  Become a part of the future of aviation by investing in and sponsoring or attending.
