TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE — A membership drive for the Jimmy Doolittle Air and Space Museum Foundation is being hosted at the Travis Heritage Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, according to a release from the Travis Public Affairs Office.

It will include Heritage Center vintage aircraft opened for view. Air and Space Museum foundation board members will be on hand to talk about the museum that’s proposed for land next to the Nut Tree Airport in Vacaville, as well as its work at the Heritage Center. The Heritage Center is also using the event to attract volunteers.

The foundation presently funds, restores and maintains many of the 35 aircraft on display at the Heritage Center.

The aircraft scheduled to be opened for viewing are the C-7 Caribou, Douglas C-47 Skytrain, Fairchild C-123 Provider, Douglas C-124 Globemaster II and Douglas C-133 Cargomaster.
