Jeff and Jen,

I'm glad to see you'll be attending; this wouldn't be a proper conference without the both of you.

I'm thinking about hosting an open reception at my Nellis suite on Friday night after we get back from Craig's "preferred" crash site tour.  Will you and Jen be in on Friday?  Let me know your plans.  

Brian

  Sorry for the blank post above - i switched pages to re- read something and it posted by itself.

  Steve from vegas here - I am in 100% for the conference.  I heard that the Kane Springs F-4D midair was under consideration as the site to examine on the 29th.  Has anything been finalized?  Will we just be going to one site?  I am currently looking for F-15C  81-0052 which should be about 10 miles down the road - if i find before then would be glad to play tour guide.

Actually we will be going to a P-39 crash just off hwy 93 and if there is enough time after that will will go to the Kane Springs F-4D mid-air. If time is tight there is an F-100 just up the road, or an F-86 mid air... or a F-80 mid air, or....

My Wife and I will be there. 

We just finalized our vacation time at our jobs.  Finally.  My wife is the most junior employee (13 years on duty) at her UPS facility and has to pick last.

Hi All,
I am considering the conference - not sure yet about time off that may be available.  I am not a member-is there a membership fee established for AAHA, and do I need to be a member to attend the conference?  Sorry this is all new to me, but I have a sincere interest.
Just purely curious also, how many are expected at the conference and are there many submissions for presentations as of yet? Since this is new to me I am just wondering about the number of folks that are a part of AAHA.
Thanks, Jana

Hi Jana,
No, there is no membership fee at this time, thus you do not need to be a member to attend. Presentation submissions should be made to Craig Fuller and his user name is AAIR (search the members of the site for his contact info). Drop me or Brian Richardson a note if you have other questions, or I'll see you at the meeting.
Nick

I have booked my trip...I am coming out. Unfortunately I booked thinking there was nothing happening on Sunday. I fly out on Sunday at 1pm so I will miss some things, it appears. The wife and I will be there to go out to the wrecksites on Friday, don't know if she will attend the actual meetings though.
Can't wait to meet some people I've met through this board.

Symposium Registration update

The deadline for registration is rapidly approaching; April 10, 2011 is the cutoff date for those wishing to attend.  If you plan on being a part of this event in Las Vegas, please make your reservations as soon as possible.

Due to stringent Air Force security policy, AAHS has to have everyone attending this conference registered for admittance by 5:00 pm (PDT), April 10, 2011.  This means you can’t show at the gate and pay at the last minute.  You must contact Brian Richardson at aviator_b@msn.com for registration and payment information.

Although available seats are filling fast, many who had expressed an interest early-on have yet to register.  Please don’t make the mistake of waiting until the last minute and missing your opportunity.  Seating is not the issue; timely registration for security is!

For registration information send an email stating your intent to aviator_b at msn.com (remove "at" and replace with @).

My holdup~
Having a heck of a time finding a deal on a ticket to Vega$.  Of all places.
Our airline here has a monopoly on the hub. It's the 2nd most expensive airport to fly in and out of in the U.S. It's looking in the negative for my attendance:/

The good news is it is looking up that I might need to travel back to CA this year, as the museum displays are coming together in Weed for the pieces of 'our' B-24 that will be placed there and the crew biographies. We are all pretty excited about that.

In the meantime, I will be here hovering around the forum...

Brian Richardson: I am not sure if you are getting my emails or not. I keep getting notices though this website asking me to officially register (not sure if this is automatic or not??) and I reply to them but keep getting the notices. My emails are going to the aviator_b@msn. Is that NAIAA address in Colorado(listed earlier in this thread) the one to send me entry fee money?
Anyway....I am officially registering. My wife will be going with us to the crash sites but not going to the symposium, so I guess I will owe somebody $58? Is this correct?
Thanks and sorry for any confusion.
Jeff

Just to clarify the communications challenges, see the early posts on page 1 for Brian's contact info, and details of the $58 conference charges and his mailing address in Colorado.

Brian's address is
aviator_b@msn.com; that is an underscore before the b, thus: aviator_b@...

Thanks - Steve Owen

Today, 10 April 2011, is the last day of registration for this event. 

I have registered--my wife cannot attend.  I will be arriving on Thursday morning and will be looking forward to going out to the desert on Friday. 

I have a few questions:

Will there be a list of potential attendees posted? 

Who will be speaking?  What topics?  

Does Brian need info for a background check so we can get on the base? 


TM.

Since we are flying in, we weren't planning on bringing our hiking packs.....how far in the desert are these wrecks? Will a fanny -pack suffice?

Fanny packs will be fine, the main thing is to carry enough water, I have a 100oz camelback backpack I am taking. Also good hiking shoes, preferably boots, are recommended.

Jeff send me an e-mail as to what time you are getting in and we can coordinate meeting up for the field trip.
