Aircraft Structures: Wood and Fabric to Metal
March 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Speakers Bureau Chairman Mike Lavelle will conclude the 2018/19 winter series, “The Grand Designs of the Golden Age of Aviation,” with the evolution from wood and fabric aircraft to all-metal designs. A favorite for his special blend of candor and humor, Mike will describe people, political events and engineering developments influencing an industry slow to abandon “the old way.” HFF collection aircraft will help Mike tell this story. Regular admission rates apply.
