Join us for a recap of the Air Show and a presentation by guest speaker Robert Fischer.
We'll be talking about fun and important events coming up, developments at the Museum, and the recent Air Show. We'll also have an exciting guest speaker: author Robert Fischer.
Our September 18 Guest Speaker will be local author and new member of the Pacific Coast Air Museum, Robert Fischer. On this 60th anniversary of the end of fighting on the Korean Peninsula, Bob will be talking about his novel set during the Korean War. His book centers on the love story of two young San Francisco residents caught up in a war after only five years of peace following WWII. He addresses the unanswered questions surrounding unaccounted for POWs/MIAs in this fictional account of what might have been.
"A powerful love story that is both triumph and tribute to a Marine whose capture during the Korean War compels his girlfriend to search for him throughout Siberia."
-- Chris Smith, Columnist, The Press Democrat
