He will be presenting his talk,  Canadian P-51 Mustangs Over Central New York in the Late 1950s, the story of how 70+ WW2-era high-performance fighter planes, whose destinations were supposed to be conflict “hot spots” around the world, came to and through nearby Canastota and Central New York. The story involves Upstate New York enterprising businessmen, arms merchants, mercenary pilots, a Canadian Prime Minister, and the US State Department.
