CAF Rainier Squadron will be at the Museum of Flight to celebrate the 100th birthday of WWII B-17 pilot and museum docent USAAF Capt Dick Nelms!
Dick was a guest on our speaker panel at our fundraiser screening of Into Flight Once More.
Weather permitting, we will take Dick on a flight in our 1944 AT-19 which saw service in India with the British Royal Navy. Our hope is that museum visitors will be able to watch the flight operation from the museum parking lot. The specific timing of the flight is TBD.
If you wish to donate to the Museum of Flight and the Blue Star Museums program in Dick’s honor: https://www.museumofflight.org/support/
