Museum to Hold Living History Day

Jan 30, 2014 No Comments by

Spend this Saturday on Hawaii’s Ford Island celebrating the adventures of yesterday’s heroes and today’s pioneers. History comes alive at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor in Honolulu through musical performances, demonstrations and hands-on activities for the entire family.

Meet the Nisei Veterans of the 100th Battalion and 442nd Regiment as well as Stacey Hayas, author of Journey of Heroes, whose comic book tells the story these brave men.

Join us for the Hawaii premiere of short films by students from Aliamanu Middle School. Sponsored by the Smithsonian Young Historians Living History Project, these films spotlight the Asian Pacific American experience through the stories of Pan Am Nisei stewardesses and the life of Chinese American barnstormer Tom Gunn.

The event is free to museum member and free with museum admission. Join the museum when you arrive and enjoy the day for free.

About the author

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.
