VAHS Warrenton/NOVA Chapter Meeting

August 20 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society, Warrenton/NOVA Chapter events August 2022. All these events are open to VAHS members and their invited guests. Please feel free to bring your pals.

Plan to join the VAHS Warrenton/NOVA Chapter, 1200 to 1400, Saturday, 20 August 2022 at the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport for a “donation lunch” and a great lecture presentation by our own VAHS member, Captain Dutch Rauch. Dutch is a most experienced Navy combat pilot, test pilot and expert on Naval Aviation history. He will present an entirely interesting and exciting perspective of combat in Viet Nam.

There will be a sandwich lunch, and a great presentation by inimitable Dutch Rauch on “Thoughts of a Career Well Spent As a Naval Aviator, Combat Pilot, and Test Pilot.”  Dutch will provide us with a rousing walk through 50+ years of  aviation history from the “deck plate-level.”  As Dutch himself once said, ” Naval Aviation saved a poor farm boy like me from a life of milking cows in -20 degree winters!” Now there is a thought to live by!

Dress is aviation casual with Aloha shirts desirable! No need for Liberty Cards if you bring your wife, girlfriend and/or children!
