Special Presentation by Anne McCombs at July 15th Chapter Social

Anne McCombs has been working for the National Air and Space Museum in the restoration shop since 1988, beginning at the Garber Facility and currently at the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Hangar in the Steven F. Udvar­-Hazy Center.

The Hubble Space Telescope SDTV, Hughes H­1“Racer”, B­29 “Enola Gay”, and space shuttle “Enterprise” are among the memorable projects she has worked on.

Prior to her career at NASM, she worked for the EAA for eight years in Oshkosh.

Her presentation will feature a discussion of the Museum’s restoration philosophy and techniques, and how they have evolved over the years, as well as some “behind­ the­ scenes” anecdotes about a few favorite and not-­so­-favorite aviation and space artifacts.
