2021 OK Women in Aviation & Aerospace Day


Oklahoma Airport Operators Association along with the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission is honored to invite you to celebrate the State’s fifth annual Oklahoma Women in Aviation & Aerospace Day.

The luncheon will provide an opportunity to hear updates about Oklahoma aviation, the future of the industry, and how we can advocate on behalf of aviation and aerospace for women across our State. Join other aviators and aerospace workers as we recognize the contributions of women to military, commercial, general and business aviation.

50 years ago...

Marine Escort

50 years ago it was my
sad but great honor to escort
a fallen Marine Lance Corporal's
remains back to his hometown
in Derby, Kansas..........
The following story or a variation of it
is familiar to many of you but this
one is very close to what happened
to me on that flight...  Long-ago!
