We are pleased to announce the 8th Annual Gala for the Champaign Aviation Museum will be held the evening of Saturday, July 25, 2020.  Doors open at 5:30pm, a B-25 flyby at 6:30pm (weather permitting),  dinner seating at 7:00pm, and guest speaker Col. Mark Tillman will give a special presentation after dinner.  All gala proceeds go towards supporting the B-17 Flying Fortress restoration and the museum's mission.  


Guest Speaker: Col. Mark Tillman, USAF (ret)

Col. Tillman's esteemed career spans 30 years in the United States Air Force.  Serving as the Presidential pilot flying Air Force One from 2001 to 2009, Col. Tillman flew President Bush on the day of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  During 9/11, Air Force One made flights into the U.S. heartland to evade possible attacks on the President and eventually returned back to Washington D.C.  The Champaign Aviation Museum is honored to have such a distinguished speaker to our 2020 Gala.
