Commemorative Special Happy Hour for First USMC Solo Flight August 20, 1912
We made Lt Col. Alfred A. Cunningham proud!!! In grand style, we toasted to his historic first solo flight as a USMC 1/Lt at Marblehead, MA on Aug. 20, 1912. In the splendor of the Pavilion of Flight, San Diego Air & Space Museum, exactly 100 years later, we paid him liquid tribute for his spectacular deed. Air & Space Museum Head Docent Verne Wochnick kindly “co-hosted” with terrific Museum guest tours during the celebration. Thanks so much, Verne. And of course, it was Mr. Jim Kidrick’s generosity that provided the awesome venue in the first place!! Thanks, Jim!!
Produced and coordinated by AG-1, we hosted guests from the Air & Space Museum, USS Midway, Flying Leathernecks Museum, Tailhook Association, DFC Society, and GKN Aerospace, Inc. of El Cajon, and many more aviation personalities of the area. We sincerely thank all who joined in the fun evening!!
