Bunco Night!

BUNCO night on Sept 17, at the OAC building.

Tickets are $5 at the door.

Bring lots of friends! If you've never played BUNCO before, it's very easy to play.

One night last year we had a small group to play, so more people could learn, and Jamie's 7-year-old daughter beat us all!

If you know you're coming, it would be helpful to let us know via Facebook. Thanks so much!

Museum of Aviation to Get Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

 

The Museum of Aviation is slated to receive an RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft that has flown more than 7,000 combat hours in the war on terrorism - more than any other Global Hawk.

That's according to a Museum of Aviation news release.

 The aircraft, #2011, recently retired from active Air Force operational use and is coming to the museum for preservation and display. The Museum of Aviation is only the second museum in the Air Force to obtain a Global Hawk – the first being the National Museum of U.S. Air Force in Dayton Ohio. It is expected to arrive at Robins Air Force Base aboard a C-5 Galaxy cargo airplane during the week of September 5 and be transported to the Museum of Aviation to eventually be put in an elevated display in the Century of Flight Hangar.
