The Tri-State Warbird Museum was formed in 2003 with a commitment to preserve the aircraft of World War II, educate visitors on America's role in WWII, and to honor the veterans who fought and those who made the ultimate sacrifice. The museum's 10th annual fundraising gala is tonight at the hanger in Batavia. Jim is joined by museum President Paul Redlich to talk about the museum and the gala. Paul brings years of expert historic aviation experience to his leadership role at the museum. He is a licensed and accomplished pilot with over 2100 hours of warbird flight time. In addition Paul has over 28 years of experience restoring and maintaining World Ward II aircraft as an FAA certified mechanic and inspector.
