Honoring our Forgotten Hero – Navy Pilot, CAPT. E. Royce Williams, USN, Retired
August 16, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$40
Come meet our Forgotten Hero, Captain Royce Williams and join us for a documentary film presentation and panel discussion regarding Williams heroism, extraordinary aerial engagement and the Korean War.
On November 18, 1952, the brink of World War III, Captain Williams and his Pacemaker Squadron took on 7 superior MiGs with their far inferior F9F-5 Panther aircraft. Due to Williams superb airmanship they took down 4 of them and the remaining MiGs retreated. 263 perforations later, Royce miraculously survived and landed his crippled aircraft. The engagement was kept “Top Secret” for over fifty years. The MiGs were flown by Russian pilots and it is the only documented attack on the United States of America given by Russia’s Command.
