Fantasy of Flight's popular Legends & Legacies Symposium Series continues Saturday, April 6, with a brand new event, "The First World War," featuring Dr. Graydon (Jack) Tunstall of University of South Florida, a recognized and widely published authority on the topic. Dr. Tunstall will present two unique talks:

Guests will learn about pilot training throughout the war, the evolution of air war tactics, and Air Aces. 

2:30 P.M.: Air Assault
Discover the fascinating history of dog fights, bombers, and balloons and the great impact they made on WWI.

Additionally, at noon and 2:00 P.M., Fantasy of Flight guests can join Dr. Tunstall, our "Expert in the Collection," as he sheds light on specific World War I aircraft treasures in the South Hangar special exhibition. 

Also, Dash McCloud and Tour Guide Joe will be stirring up the South Hangar with great stories of World War I fighter spirit and the phenomenal technology of the day!

To top it off, Fantasy of Flight founder and owner Kermit Weeks will fly vintage World War I aircraft throughout the day (weather permitting).
