The Missouri Aviation Historical Society is honored to host author, entrepreneur, and fellow board member Gary Liming as he launches a three-year-long book project on the history and accomplishments of Missouri aviator Thomas Benoist. From the first parachute jump from an airplane to the first aviation focused supplier company, Benoist was critical in the early days of global aviation. Liming will be joined by co-author Melody Davis as they present some of their findings. Copies will be on hand to purchase. Admission is free, and refreshments are available. View driving directions.
