Live online presentation. Join us to meet the author of the book published in 2021, Michigan Aviation, Barry Levine. Hear stories about the history and human interest stories of the three former Michigan Strategic Air Command bases - Kincheloe, K. I. Sawyer, and Wurtsmith. He will also discuss the 1971 crash of a B-52 bomber in Little Traverse Bay. All nine aircrew died, but the area narrowly avoided an environmental catastrophe – the B-52 was about a minute’s flight time away from its intended target, the Big Rock Nuclear Power Plant. Books are available
