URBANA [Ohio]— A World War II ace and a member of the National Aviation Hall of Fame will visit Urbana and discuss his career in a speech at the Champaign Aviation Museum later this month.

After serving in World War II and briefly in Vietnam, Clarence “Bud” Anderson also spent time at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, where he took part in some of the first flights to test whether planes could be refueled in mid-air. Anderson, who destroyed at least 16 enemy aircraft in World War II, said flying planes was all he was interested in for as long as he could remember.Read the story in the Dayton Daily news.
