A preview of the celebration of 100 years of aviation in Southern California next year has been scheduled at 10 a.m. Tuesday, November 10th at the Flight Path Learning Center and Museum in the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Imperial Terminal.
The program will review preparations that are now in full swing for the 2010 anniversary of the 1910 Dominguez Air Meet, which is often called the “birth of aviation in Southern California.” Alison Bruesehoff, executive director of the Rancho Dominguez Adobe Museum, will be the featured speaker.
Flight Path is among numerous organizations involved in preparations for next year’s festivities, according to Rowena Ake, the organization’s president.
“Our November 10th program is a great opportunity for the public to preview the exciting activities being planned and to catch the spirit of enthusiasm surrounding next year’s celebration,” Ake said. “The centennial will be a dramatic reminder that aviation has been a key part of history in Southern California for a very long time.”
Others participating in the centennial include California State University-Dominguez Hills, Aero Club of Southern California, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Western Museum of Flight, the Wings Over Long Beach Foundation, the California Science Center and the Museum of Flying.
The Flight Path Learning Center and Museum, 6661 W. Imperial Highway, is operated by Flight Path in cooperation with Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency which operates LAX. Admission and parking are free.
