Lindbergh Foundation’s “Spectrum of Aviation” Hangar Party Draws Aviation Leaders
Linden Blue, Larry Williams & Patrick Farrell
as Featured Speakers

MINNEAPOLIS, September 15, 2008 — The Lindbergh Foundation has announced that three prominent leaders from the aviation community will speak at its “Spectrum of Aviation” hangar party at the Golden Wings Museum at the Anoka County Airport in Blaine on Saturday, September 27, from 6-9 p.m.

Linden Blue of Spectrum Aeronautical will be on hand to discuss his company’s newest fuel-efficient jet.  Patrick Farrell of Forward Vision will discuss his company’s “Forward-Looking Infrared” technology for restricted visibility conditions like smoke, fog, and snow, and Larry Williams of BRS will speak about his company’s aircraft parachutes, which to date have saved 214 lives, as well as the mission of the Lindbergh Foundation.

In addition, legendary flight instructors John and Martha King, of King Schools, Inc., will be in attendance along with Greg Herrick, the owner of Golden Wings Museum, and Miles O’Brien, CNN Correspondent, who will also serve as Master of Ceremonies.

“This hangar party will give aviation enthusiasts a chance to appreciate the full spectrum of aviation -- old and new -- in the nostalgic atmosphere of one of the largest collections of Golden Age Aircraft in the country,” said Lindbergh Foundation Knox Bridges.  “With the addition of these great speakers, this party is taking on a new role as a forum for education about the latest innovations in aviation.  The BRS rocket launch is certain to add to the fun.”

The Lindbergh Foundation also plans to have a limited supply of Spirit Leather Flight Jackets from the new exclusive line of aviation-themed clothing from Orvis available for sale.

There will be a buffet-style pig roast dinner, cash bar, program and auction. Tickets to this event are $31 per person, representing the Foundation’s 31st anniversary.  Reservations may be made on-line at, or by calling 763-576-1596.  The Golden Wings Museum is located at the Anoka County Airport (ANE) – Janes Field, 8797 Airport Road, in Blaine, MN.
