Wine & Lecture: Attack Aviation

Oct 20, 2022

The Coronado Historical Association invites you to the next lecture in the Wine & Lecture series: U.S. Attack Aviation by Brig. Gen. RG Head. Attack aviation is intense and dangerous. It necessitates the direct engagement of ground and sea targets at low altitudes. Attack aircraft are usually specialized fighters or fighter-sized aircraft, with one or two engines and one or two crew. This work provides an overview history of American attack aviation from its inception to the present, including both the US Navy and Air Force. The pillars of the narrative are several case studies that characterize the evolution of technology and tactics over time: SBD Dauntless, AD Skyraider, A-4 Skyhawk, A-7 Corsair II, A-10 Thunderbolt II, and F-16 Falcon, F/A-18 Hornet, and F-35 Lightning II.

Sep 15, 2022

The Coronado Historical Association invites you to join us for the following lecture in the Wine & Lecture series, The Service Knows and Will Remember: The Airplane Crash Site Memorial on Japacha Ridge. Local award-winning historian and preservationist Alexander D. Bevil will use historic photographs and maps to reveal a forgotten chapter in North Island’s early military history: the search for missing pilot 1st Lieutenant Charles L. Webber, and his passenger, Assistant Chief of Cavalry Lt. Colonel Frances C. Marshall. The search lasted from December 7, 1922, to February 1923 and was the most extensive and longest combined air and ground search in American military history during peacetime.
