Comedy Comes to WACO Lecture Series in November

On Thursday night, November 13th, Danny Mortensen, former air traffic controller, will speak at WACO Air Museum, 7 pm, as part of the Aviation Lecture Series.    You will be sure to laugh as Danny shares his topic “Confessions of an Ex-Air Traffic Controller: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Airport.” These humorous stories will come from misadventures over his 48 years of aviation.  Doors will open at 6:30 pm.
Danny Mortensen is a pilot, author, airline instructor, world record holder, former air traffic controller, aircraft builder, and test pilot.  He currently flies a restored 1940 cabin Waco, VKS-7.
This series is made possible in part by Dayton Power & Lights. There is no charge for the event. Donations can be made to WACO Historical Society in order to support the Lecture Series.  WACO Air Museum is located at 1865 S. County Rd. 25A, Troy, OH 45373.   For more information, call 937-335-9226.
