Airline geeks are interested in some of the oddest things. I’ll admit, I fall firmly into this category. When a friend of mine reached out about a fundraiser that involved a tour of the US Zodiac seat factory, I was definitely intrigued. Here’s the deal:
Zodiac, one of the largest airplane seat manufacturers, is opening up their factory for a private tour. This will be a small group of no more than a dozen or two. And, you’ll get to tour the facility with two Medal of Honor recipients, Woody Williams & Hershey Miyamura.
There’s a $250 donation to help support the building of Gold Star memorials to recognize our military. That seems like a pretty reasonable price to pay for an aviation geek to enjoy the experience. Here are some more details from my friend Cliff, the organizer of the event:
The purpose of the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument is to honor Gold Star Families, preserve the memory of the fallen, and stand as a stark reminder that Freedom is not free.
To date there are 30 monuments, which have been dedicated, with 50 additional monuments in progress representing a total of 38 states in which we currently have a footprint.
For a donation of $250 we would like to offer this unique experience to a small number of people.
The events will take place on March 9th and 10th in Gainesville, Texas. 60 miles north of DFW.

The Final Two Pennies
I love to see American Airlines stepping up to be a sponsor of an event like this. I haven’t formally committed to attending myself, but I really would like to be there if my schedule permits. Hope to see you there!
