November 22nd Sunday Assembly


Gordon Permann, Aviation Expert

“Steampunk Spaceship: The Sub-Cloud Car”

Imagine you are a Londoner in 1916, zeppelins floating among the clouds at night and dropping bombs on your terrorized and war-ravaged city. It's a scene in countless movies over generations. Now, imagine you're a German airman, hanging by a steel tether in a basket right below the clouds. Aviation expert Gordon Permann will share an odd bit of aviation history about the man-carrying vehicles that hung 2,000 feet below German zeppelins in World War I.

 Gordon Permann is a former US Navy helicopter search and rescue swimmer and door gunner, and he was selected to serve on an Admiral's Staff, where he was awarded Sailor of the Year. During his career, he visited 31 countries, many as a Designated Naval Courier. He is now the Curatorial Assistant and the Docent for Special Events at the San Diego Air & Space Museum, where he has worked for 34 years.



We will be celebrating our second birthday!! We'll have party hats! Balloons! And much much more!
