The New England Air Museum in Windsor Locks, CT will host two speakers on Sunday, April 14th at 1:00 p.m.
Kenneth P. Katz is a former U.S. Air Force officer and flight test engineer with the 6519th Test Squadron, Air Force Flight Test Center, Edwards Air Force Base, where he tested B-52 avionics and cruise missiles. Mr. Katz is the author of the book "B-52G/H Stratofortress in Action" and will address the history of this remarkable aircraft which first flew in 1952. Five decades later, the B-52 remains in front-line service, recently taking part in combat over Afghanistan and Iraq, with current plans to have the B-52 remain in service until 2040.
The Museum also welcomes author and U.S. Air Force Academy graduate Todd Wood. Mr. Wood flew for the 20th Special Operations Squadron for the U.S. Air Force, the squadron which started Desert Storm. He is formerly an aeronautical engineer and for the past eighteen years has been an international bond trader with expertise in Emerging Markets. He’ll be speaking about his unique background in both areas, addressing how the public debt impacts national security--also the theme of his first published novel, “Currency.”
Both authors will be available after the program to sell and sign their books. This program begins at 1:30 p.m. and is included with the price of admission.
