The events were hosted by Reel Stuff founder and director, Ron Kaplan,
Mr. Kaplan is past executive director of the National Aviation Hall of Fame,
a columnist for Pilot Magazine and Warbird Digest Magazine, and provides
research and on-camera services to aviation film and media productions.
Mr. Clay Lacy, award winning aerial cinematographer.
Sunday's screening of "Top Gun" also featured retired Navy Capt. Robert L.
"Hoot" Gibson, a former "Top Gun" fighter pilot and retired five-time Shuttle astronaut.
On Saturday evening, another sell out crowd got to experience the film "Top Gun"
in 3D and also hear actor Anthony Edwards share memories
of making the film. I myself always preferred "Goose" over Tom Cruise's Maverick so
what fun to be up close and personal with the man himself! He was funny, interesting and
a joy to hear speak.
Mr. Edwards and Dr. Sandrew

Among documentaries and other special presentations will be
THE RESTORERS, the pilot episode of a public television series
presented by director Adam White and producer Kara Martinelli; a re-mastered
episode of the original Milton Caniff STEVE CANYON television series,

What a joy for all of us who are lovers of all things military aviation!
We are already excited about NEXT year!
