Sadly we lose more and more W.W.II Veterans, as most are in their 90’s now.  Their stories of war and heroism are ones that should last a lifetime, and we’ll have one of the finest most talented and witty WWII Veterans presenting again this year at the Truckee Tahoe Air Show & Family Festival.


  • Colonel Clarence E. “Bud”  Anderson,  will relive through story-telling and video his first-hand experiences fighting in W.W.II. The presentation is gripping and will captivate all ages.


This year World War II Triple Ace Fighter Pilot, Bud Anderson will speak in the EAA Building at 12 noon. Colonel Anderson will be signing and selling his book To Fly and Fight – Memoirs of a Triple Ace. 



Location: Experimental Aircraft Association Building (far south end of the ramp)

Time: 12 noon

Cost: Free

Duration: approximately 45 minutes.

Please note: This speech is subject to change, as Colonel Anderson is now 97 years-old. He served in the Air Force from 1942 to 1972.

Watch an air force fighter pilot at the age of 22 maneuver this military aircraft; then come hear him speak at the age of 97 at the Truckee Tahoe Air Show on July 13.
