On Saturday, August 13, the Lancaster, CA JetHawks held their annual aerospace appreciation night with this year's honoree being Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise.

Events included an F-18 flyover, Haise throwing out the first pitch and free bobblehead dolls for the first 1,500 people through the gate.

Events also included a salute the the space shuttle ALT program with ALT pilots Haise and Fullerton and SCA pilots Fitz Fulton and Tom McMurtry.

All in all it was quite the fun night.

Sounds like a great time, and a nice tribute as well.

It is nice to see Gordon Fullerton out and about.
