During the height of the Cold War, the Strategic Air Command developed a small fleet of supersonic weapon systems capable of destroying entire nations. Then they selected an elite group of airmen to make the system credible. This Armed Forces Day weekend many of these “right stuff” aircrew and support staff will come home to the Grissom Air Museum.
Beginning Friday May 19th a reception center and hospitality room will be open at Kokomo’s Courtyard by Marriott hotel.
Then on Saturday a full day of activities is planned at the Grissom Air Museum at the Courtyard, including a memorial ceremony to honor the 17 Bunker Hill and Grissom Hustler crewmen who were killed in the B-58 program.
Registration for the event is $75 and includes two days of hospitality rooms, two meals and the VIP treatment at the Museum. A registration form is attached for your convenience.
Please make your reservations at the Courtyard now by calling 765-453-0800 and use discount code HHHS to reserve your accommodations.
We hope that you’ll join us for the “Gathering of Eagles”.

It is now time for you to schedule your guided tour. These tours include one or more of our outstanding volunteer guides who will help bring the displays and aircraft alive with stories and information you desperately need. All of our guides are former military who either served on our base, or have lived in the area long enough that they know those special stories that you need to hear. We do not charge extra for the use of these fine veterans, but we do ask that you schedule you tour at least two to three weeks in advance so that our schedules don’t over lap. You may make your contact via email at email@example.com or by phone at 574-398-1451. We will need your contact information, your tour date request, size and age of group members, and any special information that we should know. (The picture above shows John Ensign, Air Force Veteran from the 434th, with a group of children from Indianapolis.)
The Grissom Air Museum is designed to bring people together for the a common cause, such as aircraft restoration and maintenance. The museum has 25 military aircraft on display, and these planes are located in the outdoors. After many Indiana winters, these aircraft need, and deserve, a quality care program. If you are blessed with wealth, you can make a monetary donation which will go toward materials, supplies, equipment, and professional help for a particular aircraft. (PROPS Program) If you have expertise, you can donate your time and special skills to your favorite plane. If you have time and energy, you can donate your labor to help wash, paint, and detail an aircraft, or clear out the brush that grows underneath the aircraft. (Adopt-A-Plane Program) To donate or get involved, email our director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
