Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Aviation Author Tom Doll Spoke at the Recent MO AHS Meeting

Aviation historian and author Tom Doll, a member of the Missouri Aviation Historical Society, gave a presentation that included rare color photos and video of pre and post World War II naval aviation.  Doll has authored or contributed to many publications, including SBC Helldiver in Action (Aircraft No. 151), Chance Vought F-4U Corsair (Aero No. 11), USN/USMC Over Korea: U.S. Navy/Marine Corps Air Operations Over Korea 1950-53 (Aircraft Specials series 6048) to name a few.  Doll spent part of his career at the Lockheed Skunk Works, preparing aircraft surfaces for such aircraft as the F-104 Starfighter and SR-71 Blackbird.  The Missouri Aviation Historical is very fortunate to have him as a member!
