Aviation Day at the St. Louis Science Center – March 9, 2013

383602_2762948280352_400349887_nI’m honored to have been asked to sign copies of my Being a Blue Angel book and chat with people at the St. Louis Science Center’s Aviation Day, this Saturday, March 9th.

And I know just meeting my wife and I, and getting a copy of Being a Blue Angel: Every Kid’s Guide to the Blue Angels is enough reason to grab the kids and head for the Center. But, in case you were interested, there are a few other things taking place, such as…


  • Mark Troutt – paper airplanes
  • Hal Bierman – small remote control plane
  • “Take the Controls!” flight simulators By the Gateway Eagles
  • St. Louis Flight Simulators – realistic contr
  • Special activity tables by Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum; St. Louis Community College; EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) Chapter 64; · EAA Chapter 32 booth


  • Show Me R/C Airshows scaled aircraft (south parking lot circle)
  • F4 cockpit (GSLASM) (north end of the parking lot)
  • High wing single engine aircraft  (front of Planetarium)
  • Sonerai II air racer aircraft (terrazzo floor)
  • BD-5J microjet (terrazzo floor)
  • Gateway Ultralight Association – motors and control surfaces

Plus the movie “Air Racers” is showing in the OMNIMAX, there’s a real Blue Angel jet on display, and pilot Steve Hinton, who is featured in the movie, will be stopping by.

So make your plans, and head the St. Louis Science Center this Saturday.
