DSC Has 60 Days to "Land" Blue Angel
One of the United States Navy's most striking and versatile military aircraft, the "Blue Angel" McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet, will soon be landing at the Detroit Science Center...if the museum can raise $100,000 by Oct. 15, 2010 to transport the plane to Detroit from Pensacola, Fla.
The plane, valued at $36 million, will be the centerpiece of a new exhibit gallery designed to excite and inspire young people to consider careers in aerospace and military technology. It would be the first Blue Angel F/A-18 to be displayed in a Michigan museum.
Anyone interested in supporting the project should contact Velda Garcia Fayz at 313.577.8400, ext. 456, or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
