Wine & Lecture: History of North Island

May 16, 2024

The Coronado Historical Association invites you to the next lecture of our popular Wine & Lecture series as former CO of Naval Air Station North Island, David Landon, shares his knowledge about Coronado's naval history.

The Navy's first aviator, Lieutenant Ellyson, and many other military personnel were trained at North Island starting in 1911. The station was granted official recognition as the "Birthplace of Naval Aviation" by a resolution of the House Armed Services Committee on August 15, 1963. From the military's aviation origins to geographical changes to North Island over time, David will share some of the many stories about the history and development of Naval Air Station North Island.

Wine Lecture: Save the Last Bullet

Jun 20, 2024

Join the Coronado Historical Association for our final Wine & Lecture this Spring, Save the Last Bullet. Heidi Langbein-Allen’s father, Willi Langbein, was thirteen when the Nazis took him away from his parents under the pretense of protecting him. The real reason was to mold him into cannon-fodder for use against the Russian army. Willi was sent to the Eastern Front at age fourteen in the last days of the war to stave off the advance of the Russians. Neither he nor his classmates We expected to return alive from the final battles of the Third Reich.   

Having survived the war against all odds, Willi returned home to find everything he knew destroyed. Numb and confused, he was mandated to serve one year of forced farm labor, putting his life on hold.
