Every day at the Quonset Hut, AeroCinema will run a looped video, which explains its brand, content, pricing and promise to its viewers, and will offer a special discount for attendees: 25 percent off the annual subscription plan of $49.95 or $1 off the regular monthly $4.95 plan. The discounts will be available in multiple locations, advertising and marketing collateral.
Throughout the week, attendees will have the chance to win a framed Giclee canvas by Williams S. Phillips titled “Release Your Brakes and Hunt for Heaven,” which is valued at more than $500.

About “Release Your Brakes and Hunt for Heaven”
Beginning March 1, 1942, in preparation for the famous Doolittle Raid on Toyko, 24 crews were selected to pick up modified B-25 bombers in Minneapolis and fly them to Elgin Field, Fla. There, the crews received intensive training for three weeks in simulated carrier deck takeoffs, low-level and night flying, low-altitude bombing and over-water navigation, primarily out of Wagner Field, Auxiliary Field 1. Here, William Phillips depicts Lieutenant Henry Miller, USN, from nearby Naval Air Station Pensacola supervising the takeoff training, which would prepare 16 selected crews to launch from the USS Hornet on April 18, 1942, to attack Tokyo and other designate sites in Japan. As a side note, for his efforts. Lt. Miller is considered an honorary member of the Doolittle Raiders.
About “Adolf Galland: Clash of the Legends”
