Mojave Spaceport Veterans
From a news release soon to be posted on Mojave Airport’s website:
Mojave VFW, Post #7156, Mojave Chamber of Commerce, Mojave Transportation Museum Foundation and East Kern Airport District will sponsor a Veterans Day Observance at the new Mojave Spaceport Patio, dedicating the new EKAD Board Room and Rotary Rocket Roton display at Mojave Airport on Veterans Day Saturday November 11, 2006.
[Mojave Airport is home to Lunar Lander Challenge contender Masten Space Systems, so it’s possible XA-0.1 could make an appearance, but this has been neither confirmed nor denied, due to lack of effort.]
