Come enjoy a talk by Jim Ignasher, Smithfield historian. “How did the creation of Smithfield’s first airport in 1932 ultimately change the course of WWII in the Pacific? And have you ever heard about the bizarre air battle that took place over Boston? Or what became of a fighter pilot who mysteriously vanished from formation while on a routine training flight over Connecticut?” On March 18, local writer and historian Jim Ignasher will tell these and other little-known tales relating to New England Aviation. Free event. Refreshments afterwards. Donations gratefully accepted.
