Former Air Force One Chief Steward to speak in Adamstown
The Adamstown Area Library has invited author and former Chief Steward of Air Force One John Haigh Sr. to speak. Haigh is the author of Air Force One: An Honor, Privilege, and Pleasure to Serve. The book retells many of his experiences while serving aboard Air Force One from 1979-1992, serving Presidents Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
While serving aboard Air Force One, Haigh witnessed many events with historical significance and was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of travelling the world. Haigh is a Pennsylvania native who joined the Air Force after high school.
He volunteered for flying duty and was sent to McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey in 1963. In 1973 he volunteered for duty with the 89th military airlift wing, special air missions organization at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. He experienced his first Air Force One mission on the back up flight crew with President Nixon. After that he made it his goal to become a permanent member of Air Force One’s flight crew.
In 1979 he was assigned to the flight crew during the final 19 months of Presidents Carter’s administration. He was promoted to Chief Steward under President Reagan.
Haigh will share stories and slides from his experiences aboard Air Force One. Due to expectations of high turnout this event will be held at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 80 E. Main St in Adamstown, Thurs. April 24 at 7 p.m.
You can register for this event at the Adamstown Area Library website www.adamstownarealibrary.com or by calling the library at 717-484-4800
