Here are photos from today's Grand Opening of the Aviation Heritage Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
VIP's galore attended - Congressman Brett Guthrie, State Representative Jody Richards, Bowling Green Mayor Elaine Walker, WKU President Gary Ransdell, AHP President Dan Cherry, Mig Pilot Nguyen Hong My, Master of Ceremonies Larry Bailey, Chamber of Commerce Chairman Todd Davis, and many more.
The audience heard speeches and stories about the new plane which is shown in the photos and the story behind the book "My Enemy, My Friend," by General Dan Cherry of Bowling Green. I thought Nguyen Hong My's speech was the best by far, but General Cherry's speech was close behind at second place.
Check below the photos for more websites and links.
