2014 Tribute to a Fighter Pilot2014 Tribute to a Fighter Pilot

Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum invites you to join them in an Air Force Officer’s Club setting for the annual Tribute to a Fighter Pilot event honoring General Ronald R. Fogleman. General Fogleman graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 1963 and performed combat duty as a fighter pilot and high-speed forward air controller in Vietnam and Thailand. In 1994, he became the first graduate of the Academy to advance to Chief of Staff of the Air Force. General Fogleman will share fascinating stories of his career, like the tale of his dramatic rescue in Vietnam. During a ground attack mission, his F-100 took numerous hits from ground fire. He ejected, evaded capture and, in a dramatic rescue, clung to the gun bay door of a U.S. Army Bell AH-1 Cobra gunship and was carried 20 miles to a special forces camp. Tickets include food, two drink tickets and entertainment. Flight suits or flight attire is encouraged.
