Our Area's Aviation Legacy

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm

During our library's first two decades of life, daring area balloonists and early aircraft designers turned manned flight from dream into reality. New aviation developments and enterprises matured and forever changed the transportation history of our area and our nation. Most of it began right in this area, fueled by the genius of men like Art Chester and Rudy Kling in their garages and backyards. Presented by David Kent.
