Fighter Pilot: The Memoirs of Legendary Ace Robin Olds

February 16 @ 1:10 pm - 2:10 pm

Robin Olds was many things to many people. To his West Point football coach he was an All American destined for the National College Football Hall of Fame. To his P-38 and P-51 wartime squadrons in WWII he was the aggressive fighter pilot who made double ace and became their commander in nine short months. For the pioneers of the jet age, he was the wingman on the first jet demo team, a racer in the Thompson Trophy race, and the only U.S. exchange officer to command an RAF squadron. In the tabloid press he was the dashing flying hero who married the glamorous movie star. For the current crop of fighter pilots he is best known as the leader of the F-4 Wolfpack battling over North Vietnam. Come hear the story of this true American original, program to be followed by a book sale and signing.

Presenter: Christina Olds, Author & Daughter of Robin Olds
