The Palm Springs Air Museum hosted a reception and sneak preview of the F-100 Super Sabre.

Honoree Capt. Al Dempsey and the late Major General Ken Miles had both flown a Super Sabre during the Vietnam War. The event was the first of a series of fundraisers for the new Major General Kenneth P. Miles hangar, slated to break ground in June 2016.

Approximately 200 attended the reception that included 50 retired Super Sabre pilots. Attendees included Maj. General Ken Miles widow, Karen and his daughter Wendy.
