Join us at the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum at 7:00pm on Wednesday, March 18 for an evening with Art Krull.  Krull, who served as a pilot for Delta Airlines, will talk about his experience as a crewmember on a flight that was hijacked to Cuba in January 1980.  Though the flight arrived safely in Cuba, the hijacker demanded they refuel and continue to Iran.  Art will recount the hijacking and how the crew and passengers devised a complicated and risky plan to secretly evacuate the aircraft and foil the hijacker’s plot.  If you are interested in the history of aviation you will not want to miss this talk!
