Fantasy of Flight has a huge collection of historic planes, both fully restored and in the process of being brought back to their original glory. It's also a place where history comes to life at special events like the Legends & Legacies symposium series.
Recently, the series hosted three of the original Tuskegee Airmen who shattered racial barriers as they defended their country during World War II. Now, on March 8 and 9, more living legends will appear at the "Beyond the Battlefield" presentation.
The elite panel will include a member of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), an elite group whose members gained wartime experience that prepared them for a lifetime of leadership once the war was over.
Hear about harrowing experiences and participate in the question and answer session at the open forums on the weekend of March 8 and 9. You can also participate in a meet and greet and autograph signing.
To get an idea of what the symposiums are like, check out this article with a full video of the Tuskegee Airmen presentation.
