War & Peace: A Centenary Celebration

The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum is holding an event on April 7, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the United States Air Force (USAF) and 100th Anniversary of the Royal Air Force (RAF) of the United Kingdom.

The event opens with a USAF “Rivet Joint” aircraft flying over the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum at 10 a.m. The RC-135V/W “Rivet Joint” reconnaissance aircraft supports theater and national level consumers with near real time on-scene intelligence collection, analysis and dissemination capabilities.

Squadron Leader Adrian Pickup (RAF) and Major Noah Lazenby (USAF) instructor pilots on the 338th Combat Training Squadron at Offutt AFB will share personal accounts of their flight experiences while diving into an educational program on the strategic events in history that bring the USAF and RAF together. The presentation will take place at 11 a.m. and at 1 p.m. 

Weather permitting, the Museum’s Avro Hawker Vulcan will be open for tours.
