Flagpole Project Accomplished

The RAFBHA had committed placing Flagpoles at the Museum facilities. (see “Flagpoles for the Museum” article). I’m delighted to report this project has now been accomplished.

We want to give our thanks, not only to all the RAFBHA Board Members, but to Gerry Giles (Board At Large), Jorge Gonzalez (Museum Associate Director) and a superb WASCO Team. With all these “boots on the ground” there was no doubt the project would end as a “Mission Accomplished”.

Before we continue with our comments we must acknowledge a very special WASCO Team. The commitment by this crew, assigned to the Hangar where the facilities are located, was beyond commendable. They worked on and off the clock in order to see the colors flying at the Museum. They are the Museums silent volunteers which we couldn’t be without.

We must also bring up a very special mention for some very special individuals. Ruben, Edwardo and Benji Hernandez from Western Aviation Service Corporation. Their commitment to the RAFBHA is legendary and their continuous support for the Museum is second to none.

Kudos to you all !!!


Please excuse the photographic position of the flags supplied with this story. It was taken from the Museum side looking “outward”. After closing the Museum we started another project involving the “front side” of the Museum and did not want to give it away. At least not yet, so stay tuned ???!!!???
