The Planes of Fame Museum located in Chino, CA held its monthly Living History Flying Day on the first weekend of February 2020 and focused on the F4U Corsair.

Major John Tashjian, USMC (Ret.) F4U fighter pilot and author Michele Spry attended this event.  Major John Tashjian flew Planes of Fame Air Museum's own Vought F4U-1A Corsair (17799) in combat in the South Pacific during World War II. In the 53 years that Planes of Fame Air Museum owned the plane, they were never able to connect it to a veteran until June 15, 2016 when Michele Spry' s research for her book "A Trip to Remember" discovered and communicated this exciting news to the Museum.
