The National Aviation Hall of Fame has named its Class of 2008, honoring four individuals for their aviation achievements. The 2008 class of inductees includes Col. Clarence "Bud" Anderson, USAF (Ret.), veteran WWII triple ace and experimental test pilot; Herbert Kelleher, co-founder, former CEO, and Executive Chairman of Southwest Airlines; the late William A. Moffett, architect of naval military aviation; and Sean D. Tucker, champion aerobatic air show performer and instructor. The new members are selected by the NAHF Board of Nominations, a voting body comprising over 130 air and space professionals nationwide.

The four will be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame July 19, in Dayton, Ohio. The annual Dayton Air Show takes place that same weekend. For reservations for the Enshrinement Dinner & Ceremony, call 937-256-0944 ext.10. Seats are $150 per person. For more information visit the NAHF Web site.
