The S.C. Historic Aviation Foundation will hold an open house from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Hamilton-Owens Airport.
In observance of Women’s History Month, the foundation will host retired Air National Guard Maj. Gen. Irene Trowell-Harris. She will “inspect” the World War II-era B-25 bomber that will be on display in Hangar Y1.
Trowell-Harris is the first African-American female in the history of the National Guard to be promoted to general officer. She will be joined by Brig. Gen. Darlene Goff, director of Joint Staff for the S.C. National Guard and members of the Spann Watson Chapter, Tuskegee Airmen.
Visitors can view restoration of the aircraft and take a turn in a flight simulator.
