The event that teamed NASA with the Corvette was a big AHP success.
Saturday, August 31, NASA Safety Specialist John Legere brought his VERY special 2006 Corvette to the park for display. Legere ‘Vette bears the autographs of 35 astronauts and 18 Corvette engineers, drivers or executives.
Complimenting the space connected car, Aviation Heritage Park’s NASA T-38 was also open for visitors. The T-38 “reeks of history.” The world’s first supersonic trainer, the T-38 with tail number 901 on display at the AHP has been flown by dozens of pilots in training to be astronauts. The 12 men who walked on the moon all sat in that very airplane, and all the Mercury and Gemini astronauts flew in it.
The event hit the national news after BG Daily News business reporter Don Sergent filed a story about the event accompanied by photos by BG Daily News photographer Bac Totrong. It has been viewed by millions of people across the United States, Read the Daily News Story here.
