As part of the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation’s Discovery Saturday series, join LCDR Frank Ellis (USN Ret) an bilateral amputee Naval Aviator who gives us insight on his incredible journey of his return to flight. The event is scheduled for 10 am Saturday, July 25 at the National Naval Aviation Museum.
In 1962, Ellis ejected out of a jet plane moments before a fatal crash near Point Magu, California. After losing his ability to walk, LCDR Frank Ellis (USN Ret) campaigned his way back into a cockpit. Determination and perseverance were only a fraction of his rehabilitation. His faith would be tested but along with family and persistence, LCDR Ellis once again flew and made carrier landings right here in the Gulf offshore from NAS Pensacola. Join us for a presentation by Frank Ellis, No Man Walks Alone, a story about his long journey back to becoming the pilot he was once was.
