NWOC is pleased to announce that Veterans Airlift Command will be one of our 2018 supporters in Houston, generously sponsoring our lunch with USN test pilot and astronaut Hoot Gibson.

Walt Fricke is well-known within the warbird community for his tireless efforts on behalf of veterans. The VAC provides free air transportation to post 9/11 combat wounded and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes through a national network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots.

"The aircraft’s power plant allowed for a top speed around 300 MPH and a range of 900 miles. The Skyraider became noted in history for being the only aircraft of its time capable of carrying 8,000 pounds of ordnance, 3,000 pounds more than the four engine B-17 Flyin Fortress of WWII. An assortment of ordnance could be mounted to 15 different external hardpoints on the aircraft."
