WACO Historical Society Aviation Lecture Series

On Thursday night, November 16th, West Milton resident, Patty Wagner, will share her experiences as a wing walker and pilot. Patty and her husband Bob, both considered legends in the world of aviation, spent 30 years on the air show circuit as a pilot and wing walker team. This couple has flown in all 50 states, performed in 47 states, as well as British Columbia, Quebec and every province in between, and South America. Not only will Patty share stories as a wing walker, but her experiences as a pilot of over 50 years.

This adventurous aviation duo are airport owners, have been involved in air shows, flight instruction, airplane restorations, and are currently premiere volunteers at WACO Air Museum. Come hear the story of how Bob bribed, at that time, his recent bride, Patty, with a steak dinner to crawl up on the wing for the first time!

Parking and admission are free and open to the public. The lecture is scheduled to last one hour with a time for questions to follow. It will be held in the Willis Wing of the WACO Air Museum at 1865 South County Road 25A in Troy, OH. . Donations will be accepted to benefit the WACO Historical Society. For questions, please call 937-335-9226 or visit
