Texas Tech to Open Vietnam Museum

Oct 18, 2013 No Comments by

The Texas Aviation Heritage Foundation Inc. has announced the kickoff of a fundraising campaign to establish a Vietnam War museum at Texas Tech in Lubbock.

At a luncheon hosted by the Hillcrest Country Club honoring local pilots who flew in the Vietnam war, U.S. Air Force Col. David Lewis, president of TAFHI, said the goal of the campaign is to raise at least $1 million to aid the Tech Vietnam Center and Archive in building the museum. Lewis said the campaign should be fully in place by August 2014.

“These campaigns generally take awhile,” Lewis said. “Like an airplane, you gotta get out in front of it and do things early.”

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
