EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — AirExpo 2016’s Evening With Eagles Dinner and Symposium on Saturday, July 16, will feature Doreen Welsh as the main speaker.
When US Airways Flight 1549 crash-landed into New York’s Hudson River in 2009, Welsh was one of three flight attendants on board.
Welsh will take everyone on the emotional journey of that fateful day which became known as The Miracle on the Hudson, according to AirExpo organizers.
Other VIPs scheduled to attend this year’s Evening With Eages include aces from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, 8th Air Force crew members, and World War II Naval aviators.
Also invited are members of the Red River Valley Fighter Pilots Association, River Rats, who flew missions over North Vietnam, and prisoners of war from World War II and Vietnam.
Evening With Eagles is an opportunity to meet and dine with several of America’s true Aviation Heroes, hear them speak about their experiences, and shake their hands.
