George Marrett, Test Pilot and USAF Combat Veteran. His exciting topic is “Cheating Death, Combat Air Rescues in Vietnam and Laos”. Hear what it was like to fly low and slow at treetop level helping to rescue downed USAF and USN pilots in 1968-69. Captain Marrett, went from being an Air Force test pilot flying the latest and most sophisticated jet fighters to piloting the WW II vintage Douglas A-1 Skyraider! A widely known aviation speaker and author of four books, his presentation is being jointly sponsored by the ERAU Prescott Honors Program. His books include one on this topic; another on being an AF test pilot at Edwards AFB; a third on being a civilian test pilot at Hughes Aircraft and even one on “Howard Hughes, Aviator.” You can ‘google’ his name to learn even more about this remarkable pilot.
