Yup were going back!  It’s been 10 years since the last Dayton reunion,
and there have been many changes at the museum.  Numerous exhibits have
been updated or changed, and a new display
hanger is scheduled to open on 8 June

Our Host Hotel is the
Dayton-Fairborn Holiday Inn

Fairborn, OH  45324

The special hotel rate of $105 a night (plus tax and fees) includes a great hot
breakfast buffet at no additional charge, and is good from 28 Sep through 4 Oct.

(Because of the Presidential Debate being held at Wright State University on
Monday, 26 Sep, our room rate will not be available until Wednesday, 28 Sept. )

Group rates available from Wed, 28 September
through Tues, 4 October 2016

Our Agenda includes two days at the

Because there is now so much to see, we will be going to the Museum on both 29 and 30 September.  There will be a bus available both days.  The cost is only $30 and is good for both days.  (See registration form)

On the 29th we are scheduled to have a special group picture taking event at the WB-50D exhibit in the Cold War building.  Time TBD.

For those that are interested, a special event, “The WWI Dawn Patrol Rendezvous”, will be taking place on Saturday and Sunday while we are there.  This event includes a fly over of vintage aircraft, special ground events, and other attractions and exhibits.

We do plan on repeating the flight suit / party suit contest this year.
Let's see how many new (and repeat) contestants we can get.


One of the fun activities at the 2015 Tucson reunion was a flight suit contest suggested and sponsored by  Stan Sowa.  Six of our members took up the challange.  From left Peter Copeskey, Stan Sowa, Stoney Faubus, Bill Burnette, Charles Miller, and David Steiner.  We are looking forward to  more participants next year.
