Kansas Museum Gala About Honors, Fun

Oct 29, 2013 No Comments by

The Kansas Aviation Museum’s annual gala, called “Fly Me to the Moon,” will have a different look and atmosphere from galas of the past. It won’t include a dry chicken dinner or a boring speaker, said Lon Smith, Kansas Aviation Museum executive director.

“Our whole gala … over the past couple of years has been transforming into a completely different form of event,” Smith said.

This year’s gala will feature an induction ceremony for national aerobatics champion pilot Joyce Case James into the Kansas Aviation Museum Hall of Fame and a brief presentation by Bombardier Learjet, the event’s sponsor, to celebrate its 50th anniversary of the Learjet.

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.
