Ken Nelson Joins the NAFBM Team

The Norton Air Force Base Museum has some exciting news to share! AC Ken Nelson has stepped up as our new docent. Ken served with the 15th from 1976 to 1980, and he is eager to share his knowledge and experience with the public.

We are also thrilled to announce that we will be acquiring a flight simulator, and Ken will be our flight simulator instructor. This will give visitors a unique opportunity to experience flight simulations that are as close to the real thing.

We are grateful to Ken for volunteering his time and expertise, and we look forward to offering this new experience to our visitors soon.
