Culpeper Regional Airport had tons of cloud coverage and grey skies on Saturday, October 9, but the ceiling was high enough to allow aircraft to fly and put on an amazing air show. Despite the grey sky, the event was well attended and people were able to view numerous static displays and talk to aviation
The idea for the society was fostered by Morton W. Lester, a well-known Virginia aviation enthusiast from Martinsville, who saw the need to preserve and display rapidly disappearing aviation artifacts in Virginia.
Lester soon found other Virginians who shared his vision to establish a Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society. On Nov. 30, 1977, that vision became a reality when the Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society was launched by a group of interested Virginia citizens.
The Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame was created to commemorate and preserve outstanding aviation contributions made in Virginia or by Virginians. Each year, the Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society Board of Directors selects one or more individuals for recognition and induction into the Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame.

Hope you enjoy watching this vintage footage I dug up as much as I did. This is from an airshow I went to back in 2005 with my boy scout troop at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base.
