The Gathering Foundation is helping to keep aviation history alive and accessible for the next generation by donating 500 copies of the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends collector’s edition program to The EAA Air Academy Campers and local EAA Chapter Young Eagle programs.
“It is a wonderful book full of rich history and fantastic pictures that I’m sure the campers will enjoy,” said Bob Campbell, Manager of Museum Operations and Resident Education, upon receiving the donation.
The Gathering Foundation is also donating the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends program to every child that participates in the EAA Young Eagles program sponsored by EAA Chapter 1496 at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport and Chapter 74 at Orlando Executive airport.
The Gathering Foundation Inc., a non-profit corporation that was formed in 2007 during the development phases of The Gathering of Mustangs & Legends air show, held Sept. 27–30, 2007 at Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus, Ohio. The foundation works to support the collection, exchange and archive of information as it pertains to vintage fighter aircraft and the brave men and women who flew or serviced these aircraft in war times.
The Gathering Foundation extends this offer to all EAA chapters that sponsor a Young Eagles program. Contact KT Budde-Jones at email@example.com for more information on how to receive copies of the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends collector’s edition program.
