WWII Bombardiers Share Stories at Palm Springs Air Museum

On Saturday, January 9, 2010, at 1:00 PM, WWII Bombardiers share their stories at the Palm Springs Air Museum,

 For info, visitwww.PalmSpringsAirMuseum.org or call (760) 778-6262.
 Strategic bombing was a major contributor to our victory in WW II. The evolution of the technology and tactics is one of the most interesting stories of the war. Come and hear first-hand about the critical role of the bombardier from some of the men who performed this dangerous job in the service of our Country. This program is made possible in part thanks to a grant from the City of Indian Wells.
