Mike will share his deeply personal story with Musuem visitors, and will then personally autograph and  inscribe copies of his new coffee table book lavishly illustrated with 60 original paintings and more than 250 photographs.  The careers of 30 internationally-known pilots and aviation personalities are highlighted in their own words, including Scott Crossfield, Joe Engel, Pete Everest, Fitz Fulton, and Chuck Yeager.  Flights in the T-38 Talon, Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, B-1B Lancer, and the Concorde are also shown.

Mike's paintings are all covered in this 192-page book in ways never-before seen.  From the first rough "back of the napkin" sketch through highly detailed engineering drawings and final artwork, Mike's projects are colorfully documented for the reader.  The story of the "Fly DOUGLAS!" and "Fly NAVY" murals painted exclusively for the Museum of Flying are told in vivid detail as well.

Admission to the Museum is $10 for adults, $8 for students/seniors, $6 for children aged 4 – 12, children 3 and under are free.  The Museum is currently open Friday through Sunday from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm and is located at 3100 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica, CA.
