Heritage Trophy Honors Neil Armstrong

PFLUGERVILLE, TX – SEPTEMBER 3, 2012 – As announced last week, the National Aviation Heritage Invitational (NAHI) has named its top award in honor of the late Neil Armstrong.  Beginning at this year’s invitational, the Neil A. Armstrong Aviation Heritage Trophy will be presented to the top restoration at the event during the Reno National Championship Air Races in September.  LiveAirShowTV talked with NAHI Co-Founder and National Aviation Hall of Fame Enshrinement Director Ron Kaplan about Neil’s connection to the organization and his love of the restored aircraft of old.  “I was fortunate enough to be on hand several times when Neil was there to present the awards”, said LiveAirShowTV President Jeff Lee. “The sheer joy that he got being around these aircraft of his youth was obvious. “
