Thursday, February 9th, at 7 pm, as part of the 2022-23 Aviation Lecture Series, Eric Combs, WACO Air Museum’s Director of Operations, will share the amazing feats of WACO test pilot, Freddie Lund. Although Freddie was WACO's Chief Test Pilot from the late ‘20s to early ‘30s, it is the stories of his exploits with the Gates Flying Circus and his dogged determination to put the WACO Taperwing Aircraft on the map that will have you on the edge of your seat. Combs will also explore his life from his days on a Minnesota farm to his enlistment into the 4th Pursuit Group in France and beyond.
