This is the story of one of America’s great fighter pilots who also became renowned as one of America’s most colorful military mavericks. If you liked Pappy Boyington, you will love Triple Ace Robin Olds. Here is his first hand story as told by his daughter, Christina Olds, reflected in her book “Fighter Pilot”, which she will share in person with us. It is an exciting, intriguing, and often amusing story that promises to be fascinating. Olds trained here in Torrance in the 434th Fighter Squadron flying the P-38 Lightning. He served in two wars earning the status of Triple Ace with 16 air-to-air victories. Please join us.
