Meet the filmmaker, enjoy refreshments, all free of charge!
The South Dakota premiere of the documentary film "The Greatest Weapon Ever Used" will be presented at the SD Air & Space Museum at 11:00 AM. That same morning the museum hosts a reunion of 4th Airborne Command and Control Squadron and a memorial dedication will be at 10:00 AM. The public is welcome to come out and meet these veteran's of the Cold War era and, through the film screening and a round table discussion by veterans, learn how the Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles and the people that kept them always ready ensured America's safety through the dangerous days of the Cold War. Everyone is welcome and admission is free.
Also, George Larson, a Black Hills author, will be coming into the museum to meet & greet the public. His visit will be centering on his new book giving the history of the 54th fighter interceptor squadron. This squadron was, in fact, formerly stationed inside the very hangars the museum uses now for galleries. His planned arrival time is about 9:45 AM, and he will be offering to sign copies of his book to the public.
