MOAVHIST Attends St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase

Members of the Missouri Aviation Historical Society, HEC-TV, and the Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum recently attended the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase held annually at the¬†Tivoli Theater off Delmar. The recent episode of ‘Impact’ which featured Tom Mohan’s Honor Flight was screened in the ‘Best Documentary-Short’ category. Members of Tom Mohan’s family were also in attendance to witness the special on the big screen. The honor flight took place at the 2014 Spirit of St. Louis Airshow and S.T.E.M. expo last May. Mohan flew the SBD Dauntless during the Battle of Guadalcanal in WWII, and over seventy years later returned for a flight over the Missouri skyline.
