Check Presentation to The Flight Test Historical Museum

On 23 October at the Gathering of Eagles event in Lancaster, CA, Art "Turbo" Tomassetti (F) and other past Presidents of SETP presented a check to The Flight Test Historical Museum for $100,000. Turbo noted "The flight test profession usually looks forward to the future with new technologies and new aircraft. The Society recognizes that we build that future on the foundations of the past, the things we have done and the things we have learned.  This museum will provide a place that will care for that past." This contribution is part of the Society’s pledge to the construction of the facility outside the gates of Edwards AFB, which will house The Bob Hoover Library, SETP Archives and a STEM Classroom.
