March Meeting- A Celebration of Lt. Commander Edward H. “Butch” O’Hare


The March meeting of the Missouri Aviation Historical Society took place on March 27th, 2014 at 7:00 P.M. This month’s meeting was focused on the life and impact of the late Edward H. “Butch” O’Hare. Events included a showing/presentation of a 2007 documentary on O’Hare’s life, produced for KETC by Jim Kirchherr. A question session immediately followed with remarks and interesting commentary by O’Hare’s niece Judy Foster, who also brought along years of memorabilia for display. In addition members of the Spirit Airshow team (Including our very own president) gave an update on the flying acts and volunteer positions needed, along with giving the official debut for the 2014 poster. A special thanks to Jim, Judy’s family, and for everyone else who packed the hangar!
