CHAIRMAN’S NOTE

[ BELIEVE ]

WE I N H O N O R I N G T H E PA S T Your support of the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force™ made a tremendous impact in 2018. As you are no doubt aware, it is through your generosity that the largest military aviation museum in the world has been built. Ninety-four percent of the cost of the museum complex was funded using donations to the Air Force Museum Foundation. And every year you continue to advance our vision of “Honoring every Airman’s story with a permanent home to inspire future generations.” In 2018, one more storied Air Force icon found that permanent home. An exhibit including the B-17F Memphis Belle®, the first World War II bomber to complete 25 missions over German-occupied Europe and return to the United States, was opened to the public. The Strategic Bombing exhibit honors the thousands of American bomber crews who risked their lives to weaken German war-fighting capability. The hugely successful opening event brought in guests from all over the globe.Your gifts helped make this world-class event possible. Your ongoing support is essential to another great year in 2019. The Museum will commemorate two great American achievements: the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, and the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, France. Thanks to your contributions, the first-ever augmented reality exhibit, D-Day: Freedom from Above, will open at the Museum. We hope this immersive technology will bring this historic event to life to inspire a younger audience. Lastly, I want to congratulate Mike Imhoff, the Foundation’s Executive Director, and his wonderful staff for a great year. The Foundation and Museum staffs look forward to new partnership opportunities to keep alive the amazing stories of the U.S. Air Force. Your generous support has made a permanent home for these stories possible, and continues to honor the past and inspire the future. Thank you! Col Susan Richardson, USAF (Ret) Chairman, Board of Trustees Air Force Museum Foundation, Inc.

VISION Honoring every Airman’s story with a permanent home to inspire future generations

MISSION Raise funds and awareness to support the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force mission


HONORING S PA C E F L I G H T Col R. Walter “Walt” Cunningham, USMCR (Ret), took part in the Air Force Museum Theatre’s Living History Series on November 15th, 2018. Following a reception jointly hosted by the Foundation and the National Aviation Hall of Fame, the 2018 NAHF enshrinee gave a presentation honoring the 50th anniversary of his Apollo 7 mission. He spoke about his career with NASA including being on the backup crew for Apollo 1 and serving on the board that investigated the fatal fire that killed the Apollo 1 crew. He also shared details about flying the first manned Apollo mission (Apollo 7), and being Chief of the Skylab Branch of the Astronaut Office.

THANKS TO YOU

WE IN WORKING TOGETHER We believe continuous improvement of the National Museum of the U. S. Air Force™ depends on the Museum and Foundation staffs improving their already effective partnership. Improved partnership means adopting shared goals that link the efforts of the two teams. The two most significant shared goals are improving attendance at the Museum and exploring the potential for expanding use of the Museum as a venue. The shared goal of improving attendance at the Museum focuses the Museum team on its mission of inspiration through education, and the Foundation team on its goal of generating fiscal support for the Museum. Pragmatically, this shared goal leads the collective Museum and Foundation staffs to improve planning and execution of events and activities. Joint planning drives the teams to work on collective marketing strategies. By focusing the outreach resources of both teams, we expand the breadth of potential audiences to improve attendance. Early planning allows the Museum staff to improve the effectiveness of Foundation member events by providing additional educational information of interest to members. And early planning allows the Foundation staff to better anticipate the retail potential for Museum-driven public events. We will be measuring the impacts of this cooperative planning approach. The two staffs are collectively analyzing expanding use of the Museum venue. Our key focus is to assess the potential for such events to generate a positive return on investment. From the Museum staff perspective, we already know that increased use of the Museum venue has interest in many parts of the business community, and our experience with other non-Museum related activities (e.g., hosting an annual session with the Cincinnati Reds baseball team) does show us that people who are not normally museum visitors express interest in returning. Based on these general observations, both staffs are quantifying costs and benefits to present to our respective management boards for consideration. It is a great Museum — partnership with the Foundation has made it so — and we are working on making it even better. David Tillotson Director, National Museum of the U.S. Air Force

WAS GIVEN TO THE MUSEUM IN TOTAL PROGRAM SUPPORT FOR 2018


WORKING TOGETHER TO CONSERVE THE S TA R G A Z E R December 13, 1962 two courageous men rode nearly 16 miles into the sky. Air Force Capt Joseph Kittinger and Navy astronomer William White spent eighteen and a half hours in a 7-foot-wide aluminum gondola secured to a balloon as part of Project Stargazer. Their mission: to see the universe from above the distortion of the earth’s atmosphere for the first time. In fact, Stargazer’s successful star tracking inspired future advances. Stargazer paved the way for future space-based platforms such as the famous Hubble Space Telescope. Thanks to your generous support the Foundation is working with Museum staff to conserve the Stargazer — the last manned USAF balloon gondola.

WE IN IMPROVING EXPERIENCES

THANKS TO YOU

We believe in ever improving and reaching for new heights. That is why you, as a part of the Foundation family, are crucial to the Museum and its mission to connect, educate, and inspire. The Memphis Belle® exhibit, which your donations helped make possible, was a “once-in-a-generation” opportunity that connected with visitors young and not so young. It truly touched the lives of many by telling the story of the strategic bombing campaign over Europe during World War II and of the brave men who sacrificed their youth so that we could live free. And yet, we must keep up with the times and look to the future to remain relevant. As technology advances, so must the Museum in order to inspire future generations. In 2018 you purchased seven stateof-the-art flight simulators to enhance the new flight program of the Museum’s Education Division.Your generosity has enabled students to embark on the path toward a pilot’s license. Thanks to you they are studying the physics of flight, learning the basics of ground school, and gaining experience in the simulators.Your encouragement of their passion to pursue flying may also inspire some to serve in our U.S. Air Force. Your commitment of time, energy, and resources to ensure every airman’s story has a permanent home to inspire future generations is incredibly important to the Museum. Looking forward, you, as a family, will continue to carry the torch; ever improving and reaching new heights. In the coming year you will do it by leveraging emerging technologies, such as cutting-edge augmented reality, to immersively connect visitors with the past, present and future of the Air Force. For as individuals you are formidable. As a family, we are unstoppable. Thank you all for making a difference. Michael P. Imhoff Executive Director Air Force Museum Foundation, Inc.

WE IN PRESERVING HISTORY It’s obvious that the Museum’s mission to preserve the Air Force’s history and to be good stewards of the national historic collection is important to you. “Supporting aircraft restoration” is the number one survey response when we ask “Why do you give to support the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force™?” Last year the Museum began a multi-year effort to restore the Avro 504k, a wood and fabric bi-plane that was the primary trainer for many American student pilots in Britain during World War I. The project entailed removing the old fabric skin on the wings and fuselage, and replacing it with linen from England matching the same specifications as the original fabric. Enter Bruce and Karen Campbell, Foundation members for 18 years. Bruce served four years as a flight mechanic in the Air Force in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Following his service he met Karen while studying for his Airframe and Powerplant certificate in Florida. He took an aviation job in Dayton after he graduated, and they were married. “Moving to Dayton with the Air Force Museum close by gave me a great place to see airplanes,” Bruce recalls. Last year the Campbells made a major gift that financed the purchase of linen fabric from England to replace what was removed from the Avro 504k. “My estate planning leaves money to the Museum,” Bruce explained, “but my wife Karen and I decided ‘Why wait?’ We can support projects like the Avro 504 and enjoy seeing the restoration while we are still here. Projects like this restore important airplanes for future generations to see and learn about the history of aviation. We are proud to be part of this effort and will continue to support the museum in the future.” Like the Campbells, your support makes possible the Museum’s efforts to restore and preserve history.

RESTORING HISTORY Museum restoration specialists remove wing fabric on the Avro 504K. Using original period parts, the Royal Canadian Air Force’s Aircraft Maintenance & Development Unit built the aircraft in 1966. Preserving the Air Force’s proud legacy, the Restoration Division is restoring the aircraft, replacing the fabric covering the wings and fuselage with historically accurate materials.

WE IN SHARING EXPERIENCES March 14, 2018, nearly 300 of you braved winter temperatures to share the experience of seeing the restored B-17F Memphis Belle® for the first time after more than a decade of meticulous restoration. That afternoon she was moved from the restoration hangar to the Museum. At the same time B-17G Shoo Shoo Shoo Baby was moved out of the World War II Gallery and the two aircraft sat nose to nose in the light of the setting sun. Among the guests sharing that magic moment was Paul, a fifth grader from the Chicago area. He is a military aviation enthusiast who has visited the Museum roughly a dozen times in his 11 years. His father, Andrew, is a Foundation member, and the family had been following the restoration of the famous plane on the Museum’s website. Unfortunately, Paul was too young to participate in the Behind the Scenes tours during their frequent visits to the Museum. And he was disappointed that he wasn’t going to be able to attend the Memphis Belle public unveiling on May 18 because he’d be in school. So when Andrew received the special invitation to attend the move he knew he had to share the event with his son. Andrew said Paul shed tears of joy upon learning his father was keeping him out of school so they could drive to Dayton together to see the Belle.Your support helped make this historic Museum event possible, enabling this young man to share in it and be inspired by it. “I care about the Museum because it honors Air Force veterans and it’s a place to remember their service,” Paul told us. “It’s preserving important history for so many people to appreciate, share, and enjoy.” It probably won’t surprise you to learn that someday Paul would like to join the United States Air Force.

WE IN INSPIRING THE FUTURE While the Museum is a place to look at and learn about the past, you can also look to the future. And there is much to be learned doing both.You made clear in your responses to our survey last year that you support educational programming. Nearly two thirds of you chose “support for educational programming” when asked to rank specific programs the Museum should be focusing on.Your assistance made many different types of inspiring educational programs at the Museum possible in 2018. You enabled programs like the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs offered in the STEM learning nodes; Aerospace Camps; and Family Days. Items to demonstrate the theme of each Family Day such as robotics, weather, and satellites were provided through your generosity. Aerospace Camp participants received rocket kits, solar-power kits with sensors and circuit boards and virtual reality rides to the International Space Station thanks to your help. And it’s not just pure scientific learning that inspires future generations at the Museum.Your generosity also makes possible arts programs like the Air Force History and Heritage Writing Competition, and the Student Aviation Art Competition. The writing competition is open to high-school-age students. Because of you the top three winners in 2018 received scholarships worth up to $1,200. The art competition accepts submissions from students in grades K-12. Last year 21 winners were selected to win gift cards to the Museum Store worth up to $75, and the Best in Show received a $150 Museum Store gift card. And of course, your support of the Museum’s Research, Restoration, Collection, and Exhibits Divisions means everyone, young and old, is learning about history every time they visit the Museum and see the historic aircraft and artifacts on display. You are inspiring the future by supporting the Museum today!
