News Community Retired Navy captain to speak at aviation meeting

Working with Mickey and Minnie Mouse to the admiral commanding the Pacific Fleet are just a few of the career highlights Capt. Betsy Bird, USN (Ret.) will share at the Tuesday, Oct. 15, Aviation Historical Society meeting.

She was at the Pentagon when terrorists crashed an airliner into it on 9/11.

The Franklin native began flying at age 16 from the local airport. She retired after 26 years of service as a public affairs officer.

The program begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Macon County Airport near Franklin. There is no charge and the public is welcome.
