A Very Special Event…
Saturday, March 4th, at 5:00 p.m.
The National Museum Of WWII Aviation is proud to announce that Christina Olds ( A National Best Selling Author ) Has graciously agreed to come speak to us about her father…
Legendary "Triple Ace" Robin Olds.
“There are pilots and there are pilots; with the good ones, it is inborn. You can't teach it. If you are a fighter pilot, you have to be willing to take risks."
Robin Olds... (July 14, 1922 – June 14, 2007) was an American fighter pilot and officer in the U.S. Air Force. He was a "triple ace", with a combined total of 16 victories in World War II and the Vietnam War. He retired in 1973 as a brigadier general.
The son of Army Air Forces Major General Robert Olds, educated at West Point, and the product of an upbringing in the early years of the U.S. Army Air Corps, Olds epitomized the youthful World War II fighter pilot. Rising to the command of two fighter wings, Olds is regarded among aviation historians, and his peers, as the best wing commander of the Vietnam War, for both his air-fighting skills, and his reputation as a combat leader.
Christina Olds... In 2010, Christina Olds published a memoir of her father’s life titled Fighter Pilot; The Memoirs of a Legendary Ace Robin Olds. The book became a national bestseller, heralded by reviewers and readers as an exceptionally literary and lyrical biography Olds has begun work on a screenplay for FIGHTER PILOT and is also working on a second book, the story of her grandfather, Maj. Gen. Robert Olds, an instrumental leader in the development of early air power and the U.S. Air Force.
A Vassar College graduate with a degree in creative writing, Christina is a sought-after speaker at Air Force bases, aviation museums and air shows, both nationally and abroad, and is dedicated to furthering her father’s legacy to inspire today’s active duty fighter pilots around the world. She lives in Sacramento, CA and is the mother of a beautiful daughter, Jennifer Olds Newman, a costume designer in Los Angeles.
