Legacy Gala – Step into the Future

We are very grateful to all our supporters who attended our Legacy Gala. We were overwhelmed by the number of attendees this year and nearly ran out of steak!  Our chef Marshall made sure everyone was well fed with delicious steak, Shrimp Scampi, Oxtail and Jamaican Chicken.

And then we dedicated the T-28 to Burton Lowe and Theodore “Ted” Lumpkin…



















and the ZLin was dedicated to Levi Thornhill…
















…and the Pipistrel Alpha Electro was dedicated to Chauncy Spencer.







Chef Marshall demonstrating his culinary prowess…






















Our honored guests





















These two clearly are up to no good.

Join us on December 14th at 6:00pm for a magical escape through pure storytelling with musical accompaniment and dramatic interjections by Miss Kalean Ung.

“David Melville has an almost preternatural gift for wry understatement and comic timing.” – LA Weekly

American Airlines Donates $25,000 and a $90,000 Auxiliary Power Unit


Top executives from American Airlines take a trip to Compton to present the most prominent donation in the history of Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum.  Along with the presentation of a $25,000 check, American donates an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) intended for powering an MD-80 or regional jet.  This piece of maintenance equipment retails at $90,000 and signifies the start of our airline mechanic training program.  With the help of American Airlines, TAM now has the ability to produce quality mechanics poised to take the aviation industry by storm.  This support sparks plans to upgrade the museum to Smithsonian quality and expand into a national program.  Our success hinges upon the support of the amazing people who work at American Airlines.  Thank you so much!
